Hello,
Unfortunately, we don’t have an NPM package with the Pro version. But you can install Gantt as an NPM package the following way:

  1. Unpack Gantt to a specific folder, for example, to /opt/gantt_pro
  2. Use the following command to install Gantt:
npm install /opt/gantt_pro

You can read more about installation methods in the following article:
https://docs.dhtmlx.com/gantt/desktop__install_with_bower.html#addingproeditionintoproject

It is not recommended to replace files in the node_modules folder. When you do that, you are only replacing them on your computer.
If you unpack Gantt in a folder inside your project and install it with the npm install command, NPM will add a link to the folder and modify the package.json file. And when you run your application on another computer, Gantt will be there after you run the npm install command.

Here are examples:

However, please note, that you shouldn’t include the unminified version of Gantt in your product when you are delivering it to your customers:
