There are many projects that now utilize grunt or npm or node or some combination thereof. In particular I was having problems with installing Brackets on Xenial Xerus and needed to just start with the source code. I found to my dismay that it wasn’t going to be a simple ./configure;automake;make all;make install situation and instead I was going to have fun doing the grunt build and the npm install and so on. I’m not going to say this is necessarily a bad thing, and certainly much good has come from these projects. Its simply that with greater sophistication comes greater chance for complication.
