With version 0.6.0, Meteor introduces NPM support. But full NPM support is only available for meteor packages. Only the core NPM modules used by meteor can be loaded from the meteor app. That means if you need to use an NPM module like redis, github, or winston you are out of luck. But it’s not impossible. Recently, though, I’ve come up with a smarter way to use NPM with Meteor. It is bundled as a smart package and very easy to use.
