Upgrading SINON in practicalmeteor:sinon

Am in the throws of writing lots of tests as I code, and found, much to my chagrin, that the version of SINON in practicalmeteor:sinon is a couple of years out of date.

From a practical standpoint is there is no easy way to update/override this?

installing sinon as an npm module, and importing it doesnt seem to work, and overriding the locally installed version of sinon in the package obviously breaks things.

Any ideas/pointers? Much appreciated.


Ack … a blonde moment after several hours continuously in front of the computer.

Needless to say I can of course simply import:

import sinon from ‘sinon’;

and the same with chai etc as required!
