The advice is simple: Don't rely on third-party stuff you can implement yourself with no significant effort. And for stuff you can't, backup those modules.

What is the best way to backup modules? Do you need to create your own private module host, as you can for ruby gems?

I may sound old but one can start with just backing up node_modules/ directory.

If third party modules are hosted on GitHub, you can fork them.
