Inconsistent behavior between adonis/cli and npm


Hello, I noticed that there is a discrepancy in the structure of my node_modules directory between npm install and adonis install. For example:

npm install @adonisjs/vow


adonis install @adonisjs/vow

In the first case I end up with 10 or so modules in my node_modules directory. In the second case I end up with closer to 80.

So I suppose my question is, what exactly is the adonis install command doing that npm install is not?


@adonis install just runs npm install under the hood. The only extra thing it does it run the instructions file for the installed addon.


Thanks for the response. Seems that there was some inconsistent behavior in our build process.
