nixfromnpm: Generate nix expressions from npm packages.

[ mit, nix, program, tools ] [ Propose Tags ]

Given an npm package name and one or more npm repositories, will dump out a collection of nix files, one each for the initial package and all of its dependencies. Will generate a top-level default.nix which returns a set containing all of these expressions. Subsequent invocations of the program using the same target directory will result in re-use of the existing files, to avoid unnecessary duplication.
