Local tern installation instead of global one

See original GitHub issue

I switch node/npm versions in different projects and having to install globally means that I have to install it on every version that I use, which is kind of a pain. So if we can make this a local dependency for the plugin like tern_for_vim this would be great.

@carlitux While gulp-cli, ava-cli, babe-cli etc… should be installed globally. Like @ahmedelgabri I install all of that as a devDependency and either run them through npm scripts and I also have export PATH=$PATH:./node_modules/.bin in my .zshrc file. This keeps my global installs relatively clean.

I do this because I work on multiple projects that tend to have different tools. One might use Grunt, the other Gulp or the worst case recently was the different versions of Babel.

I do have tern_for_vim installed as well. I thought it was compatible, but it doesn’t look like it.

Using $(npm bin)/tern as the tern binary is the best choice in my opinion.
