npm install yields warnings about watchify peers that I can't seem to correct

Running npm install raises the following warnings:

npm WARN karma-browserify@5.1.0 requires a peer of browserify@>=10 <14 but none was installed.

npm WARN karma-browserify@5.1.0 requires a peer of watchify@>=3 <4 but none was installed.

I ran the following:

npm install browserify
npm install watchify


watchify --version


watchify v3.7.0 (in /usr/local/lib/node_modules/watchify)

browserify v13.1.0 (in /usr/local/lib/node_modules/watchify/node_modules/browserify)

which match the requisites in the warning, but running npm install again yields the same warnings. Did I do something wrong? Is there something else I should do? I admit I do not understand what the warning means with "peer" and tried googling but did not find the answer

You're almost on the right path. Try running

npm install browserify watchify --save

Like @JacopoBrovida has mentioned

Unless your modules are persisted onto your package.json, npm wouldn't register them.
