Question 6.3

Question: If a package dependency has a development dependency, in what scenario, if any, will the development dependency be installed?

If we use npm install inside package folder it will install dev dependency also but the answer marked was 'Never'..


  • I totally agree with you. I think it's a mistake :/

  • No - "Never" is the correct answer.

    If a package dependency HAS a development dependency.

    Package -> dependency -> development dependency


    Package -> development dependency

    dev deps of sub deps never install
