Npm error. First time installing


(motahar malik) #1

Hello!

I am new to this whole thing, and I recently tried downloading nodejs through the terminal. (I have a Macbook Air). I am completely new to all this please help. I have attached a screenshot to show the problem.
(please let me know if you can’t see the attachment)
Thank you all in advance!

Kind regards
Motahar Malik

The short version is try quick fix:

sudo chown -R $(whoami) ~/.npm

The long version and canonical bug is: Global installs (sudo npm i -g) fail on Mac after 6.5 upgrade. Works fine after 6.4.1 downgrade.
