Installing mojito on Ubuntu 12.10

February 09, 2013

Installing Mojito should be a simple task using Ubuntu’s Package manager… Install the required node and npm dependancies

$ sudo apt-get install nodejs nodejs-dev nodejs-legacy npm

Update npm:

$ sudo npm install -g npm

Clear npm cache:

$ sudo npm clear cache

Install Mojito:

$ sudo npm install mojito -g

If you get an error similar to:

npm ERR! error installing js-yaml@1.0.2
npm ERR! error installing mojito@0.5.3-1

npm ERR! Error: ENOENT, chmod '/usr/local/lib/node\_modules/mojito/node\_modules/js-yaml/bin/js-yaml.js'

Remove the yaml directory:

$ rm -rf ~/.npm/js-yaml

And clear the cache:

$ sudo npm clear cache

Then re-attempt the installation:

$ sudo npm install mojito -g

Now, Enjoy those tasty Mojitos!
