- With default permissions and setup, you need to use sudo to install global packages with npm (on Mac and Linux). Were you using sudo?
sudo npm install --global gulp-cli
There are ways to avoid this by changing permissions, or changing install location, but giving you the easy answer to get you unblocked.
- Are you on a Mac? Upgrade to npm 6.10.1 which fixes one source of EISDIR errors: Release: email@example.com
