Require dependency of another dependency in node modules
I've got a simple node app that has single Dependency on another app on github. The dependency installs just fine with
npm install, but when I try to require something installed there, it says it's not available. For example, the github app installs Mongoose as a dependency. I thought that this parent app would be able to access that module since it is in a child:
var mongoose = require('mongoose')
The structure looks something like this:
/app /node_modules /github_dependency [parent module] /node_modules /mongoose [child module]
Do I just have to Include Mongoose as a dependency as well in the parent app or is there a way of getting access to that module by way of the child?

While it's possible for you to e.g.
require('github/node_modules/mongoose'), the standard practice is to install all of your dependencies explicitly (i.e., you should include mongoose as a dependency of your app) and
