I beg to slightly differ on the point below.

I think of npm or yarn/yarnpkg as the equivalent for the nodejs
ecosystem of python virtualenv. There are workflows where you'd want to
maintain a certain configuration of a webapp, phonegap app or website
using a local set of modules / pinned versions.

Getting npm / yarn into Debian is a high priority task to expand the
Debian user base.
If we have those, from there on all the web developers of the world can
run npm without the -g option and maintain their projects as they like,
possibly using a mixture of globally installed binaries and locally
installed modules.
