Installing NPM package from Zip file

I need to install a NPM package that is saved in a Zip file, the typical install instructions are go to the directory where you extract and simply say “NPM install”…

I’m wondering how I could install this zip NPM package in to my Meteor project?


Typically the method I use in that case, assuming it’s in a sibling folder to the Meteor project, would be:
meteor npm install …/npm_folder/zip_file_name.tar.gz --save

You should be able to observe the contents of the zip extracted into the /meteor_project/node_modules/package_name folder.
