    In typical case scenario you pass a published package name when installing it via npm:

    npm install jquery

    Let's say you have awesome-editor library written by yourself stored on your local machine under ~/projects/awesome-editor.

    Installing it in your project is as simple as:

    npm install ~/projects/awesome-editor

    Once the installation is finished you will see a new entry in package.json:

    "awesome-editor": "file:<relative path goes here>",

    That's it, you can now use it in your project!
