Why not just include the dependencies if you have to install them anyway?
In this video, Andrew talks about not including the dependencies files in your project so they wouldn't be included in your github repository. But, if someone downloads your project, it looks like they have to install those packages anyway? So why not just include them? Is it just to save space on your github?

Yes, it does save space in your project's repository.
Sometimes the dependencies require many times the amount of space as the project using them.
It also allows the downloader to get the latest versions directly from the source that maintains them.
