I mean... WTF? If you use a third party module in live code, you surely don't link it to a live repository. What am I missing here?

You're missing the fact that almost all modern JavaScript development is based on exactly this model (via node/npm/yarn) and it is even considered to be "bad practice" to bring code into your own source tree rather than download on demand. Given that so many developers start with JS these days, this becomes standard practice and they don't even think about it.
