This utility will walk you through creating a package.json file.
It only covers the most common items, and tries to guess sensible defaults.

See npm help json for definitive documentation on these fields
and exactly what they do.

Use npm install <pkg> afterwards to install a package and
save it as a dependency in the package.json file.

Press ^C at any time to quit.
