Install Problem on OS X 10.11

Dan Shafer
I'm running into a problem trying to install Amber on OS X 10.11. I hope someone can help.

I have been popping in and out of rabbit holes installing npm and node and brew for the past two days. I finally got to where I have correct (AFAICT) installs of both npm and brew. So I go into Terminal and I type "npm install amber". I get the following error:

npm WARN checkPermissions Missing write access to /Users/dan/node_modules

/Users/dan

└── amber@0.18.3 


npm WARN enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/Users/dan/package.json'

npm WARN dan No description

npm WARN dan No repository field.

npm WARN dan No README data

npm WARN dan No license field.

npm ERR!

OK, so I switch to su and run the "npm install amber" command again. This time, I get the following error:


npm WARN enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/Users/dan/package.json'


I am by now a bit bewildered. I'm fairly technical but i'm also retired and out of the loop for the past few years, so I may just be missing something really obvious.


I've never used brew but I tried, as superuser, "brew install amber" and got warned that brew doesn't run as su anymore because of security issues. So I log out of su and try the instruction again. This time I get the following errors:


Updating Homebrew...

Error: No available formula with the name "amber" 

==> Searching for similarly named formulae...

Error: No similarly named formulae found.

==> Searching taps...

Error: No formulae found in taps.


I don't know how to proceed now. I've tried both npm and brew as su and admin and I get nowhere. I'm REALLY anxious to start exploring Amber (I'm a long-time Smalltalker, wrote a couple of books on it back in the day, still think it's the best language on the market...).


Somebody? Please?


Thanks,

Dan

No instructions I am aware of say you should run `npm install amber`.

Try to follow official README at https://lolg.it/amber/amber.

Herby,

Thanks for the tip. I did try using those instructions. Everything *seems* to run fine but when I type "amber init" and answer all of the project setup questions, I get an error:

Writing Gruntfile.js...ERROR
>> Error: Unable to write "/Users/dan/amber_projects/test2/Gruntfile.js" file (Error code: EACCES).
Fatal error: Unable to write "/Users/dan/amber_projects/test2/Gruntfile.js" file (Error code: EACCES).
grunt-init exec error:
3

It looks to me like permissions are set correctly on the directory "test2" -- at least as far as I can understand them. The directory permission are "drwxr-xr-x".

When I try to run the amber init command as su, I get the same error.
 
So I type the command amber init --force and I get the same error:

 As you can tell, I'm not very seasoned in the Terminal/shell world. I know my way around directors and chmod and other basics but that's about it. I only replied here out of courtesy to thank you for pointing me in what was obviously a much shorter path to success. I hardly expect you to support my stumbling around the CLI. But if you do have any suggestions, I'm open.

Meanwhile, I'm re-familiarizing myself with Smalltalk via the Pharo impementation but since my objective is to create web/mobile apps, I'm not sure it's where I want to stay if I can once get Amber working!
 

May Your Life Be Filled With Peace,

Dan

Indeed, looks like permissions issue. I have never seen it, though. May be problem with your node / npm setup, especially when su was involved there.

Try to clean it all reinstall again. :-/

Btw, --force has no effect. You may have seen --force error message from grunt-init, which `amber init` uses internally; but that likely means you are running `amber init` from nonempty directory. It should only be run inside empty one.
