Tried installing Bower package onto Sublime. Said it was installed, but never worked. I get the warning:
> bower could not be found in your $PATH. Install bower with npm install bower -g
Not comfortable in Terminal, but went in and tried to install there. Now getting the error:
>-bash: npm: command not found
I’m a total noob in working in Terminal, not sure what’s going on or how to fix it.
Thanks for any help!!
This stuff can certainly feel really complicated!
-bash: npm: command not found
That means that you don’t have npm installed.
> **npm** is a package manager for Node.js that is run through the command line and manages dependencies for an application. It is the predominant package manager for Node.js.
Unfortunately, all of this stuff is a little beyond me, but hopefully you can get some info from here: https://npmjs.org/
Or, better yet, somebody will jump on and explain it better than I can!
Excellent! I did some searching and found a Node installer. I was then able to install Bowser and everything appears to be working fine.
