Why?

It sucks to Ctrl-C your build script & server just to install a dependency you didn't know you needed until now.
Instead, use require or import how you normally would and npm install will happen automatically to install & save missing dependencies while you work!

Installation

$ npm install --save-dev npm-install-webpack-plugin

Usage

In your webpack.config.js:
plugins: [
  new NpmInstallPlugin();
],

This is equivalent to:
plugins: [
  new NpmInstallPlugin({
    // Use --save or --save-dev
    dev: false,
    // Install missing peerDependencies
    peerDependencies: true,
    // Reduce amount of console logging
    quiet: false,
  });
],

You can provide a Function to the dev to make it dynamic:
plugins: [
  new NpmInstallPlugin({
    dev: function(module, path) {
      return [
        "babel-preset-react-hmre",
        "webpack-dev-middleware",
        "webpack-hot-middleware",
      ].indexOf(module) !== -1;
    },
  }),
],
