[NodeJS] AppDynamics sub-dependencies on npm registry

[NodeJS] AppDynamics sub-dependencies on npm registry

Hi there,

 

I'd like to know if it's possible to have the AppDynamics dependencies (jre, libagent, native, protobuf, proxy, zmq) on npm registry. Right now, appdynamics module has these dependencies statically being fetched from "packages.appdynamics.com".

 

Is there any specific reason for AppDynamics choose not to publish these packages?

 

Thanks in advance,

- Gabriel Saldanha.

Hi Gabriel,

 

We host these subdependencies on our own repository so that we can dynamically serve different artifacts based on the npm user-agent. We leverage this capability to target the correct native binaries for your particular Node.js version, platform, and architecture. Since npm provides no facility to do this kind of targetting, we unfortunatley can't use their registry for these dependencies.

 

Is there are particular reason you don't want to use packages.appdynamics.com?

 

Best,

Kyle

Thanks,
