unable to install webpack-dev-server on mac
I am trying to install webpack dev-server on my mac system.
I am able to install webpack but unable to install webpack dev-server. It gives following errors
Unhandled rejection Error: EACCES: permission denied, rename ‘/Users/Priyesh/.npm/_cacache/tmp/8fd7fe6e’
Some people are encountering problems with or after using sudo for global installs in latest npm. A likely work-around is to reset the ownerships on ~/.npm:
sudo chown -R $(whoami) ~/.npm
Or go further and remove the need to use sudo for the global install: Global installs (sudo npm i -g) fail on Mac after 6.5 upgrade. Works fine after 6.4.1 downgrade.
