I'm having trouble installing Gulp

I’ve been trying to install Gulp from the command line and I’m totally lost. Here’s the error message I’m getting.

In the chown you have $eli but you presumably want $USER or eli.

In the install, you have -gulp but gulp is a package name not an option, so just gulp without the dash. (npm does not warn about unrecognised options and just ignored that and tried to install out of the current directory.)


Thanks for your help. I think it’s all up and running.
