What are Debian packages?

Debian is a free operating system ( OS ) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an OS) along with thousands of software packages (also called 'packages') that are each distributed in a separate file. The packages contain the program code that does all the work, and are connected to each other in what is called a package dependency hierarchy . Each package depends on some smaller package or packages, which in turn depend on even smaller packages, and so on.


What is Npm?

Npm is a package manager for the JavaScript programming language. It is the default package manager for the Node.js runtime environment and can be used to install, uninstall, and publish new packages. Also, npm is not an installer. It is most commonly used in combination with Node.js, the JavaScript platform built and maintained by Joyent and best known as the runtime for npm itself. You use npm to install Node.js, and any version of Node.js, you can use npm to look up, download, and publish packages containing any kind of code you want: command line tools, GUI tools, webservices over HTTP or TCP or WebSockets, anything you might want to publish for consumption by other people in the JavaScript community.
