Components can use 3rd party libraries which are defined in the standard package.json file. An example:

    "name": "appmixer.twilio.sms.SendSMS",
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "private": true,
    "main": "SendSMS.js",
    "author": "David Durman <>",
    "dependencies": {
        "twilio": "^2.11.0"

The package.json file from the example above tells Appmixer to load the twilio library that the appmixer.twilio.sms.SendSMS component requires for its operation.

Note that the appmixer pack command from the Appmixer CLI ignores the node_modules directory when creating the zip archive representing your custom component. This is intended since when you publish a component to your Appmixer tenant, Appmixer will automatically download dependencies specified in the package.json file.

More information on the package.json file can be found at
