@sadiq can you try to fix ? npm2deb is written in python and its source is available at


Mohammed Sadiq Sun 9 Oct 2016 8:58AM

@suhail have contacted me regarding this bug. Hope he shall fix this. :)


Pirate Praveen Sun 9 Oct 2016 9:05AM

There are many bugs, I asked him about another bug :) Can you generate dependency list for livescript? This is going like a chain reaction :(


Mohammed Sadiq Sun 9 Oct 2016 10:01AM

I can't reproduce the bug you sent to @suhail [0].

I get the right result. I'm on Debian Stretch with no packges from sid. Let me know how to contact you via IRC. Or else, contact me at freenode (nick: pksadiq)

What is the output of apt-cache policy node-nomnom? node-nomnom was added to stretch only on 2016-08-03. Try again after you run apt-get update. I'm j4v4m4n on freenode.

I have contacted some folks and asked them to try fixing some bugs in npm2deb (its written in python). Please comment on the bugs if you have started working on any bugs.

Others please take one from and comment here before starting.

Hi praveen ji,I am currently looking into the source code of npm2deb
to try and modify it to the pi to deb format as we had discussed that day.

If you can read Ruby code, please go through the source code of gem2deb also. From my experience, it automates more stuff than npm2deb.

It would be good to know the workflow gem2deb is following too.
