Yes, you can install a dependency as a devDependency (e.g.
npm install -D nodemon) instead of installing it globally (e.g.
npm install -g nodemon) and you can still use it inside your project.
However you cannot use it directly (e.g. by typing
nodemon index.js in the Terminal)
You must create a script and then run the script to use it. (e.g. in package.json, you add
"start":"nodemon index.js" and then you are free to use nodemon as with a global install by running
npm start in the Terminal)
