Topic: MDB Angular Pro Installation question pro asked 4 years ago

I'm still trying to get MDB Angular Pro installed....

In the docs it says to update package.json with a dependencies object, which I've done and saved. Then it says to run npm install which I've also done, but I keep getting permissions errors, so I've tried "sudo npm install" and I still get the permissions error:

Richs-Mac-Pro:angularpro rich$ sudo npm install

npm ERR! code 1

npm ERR! Command failed: /usr/local/bin/git clone -q https://oauth2:<TOKEN> /Users/rich/.npm/_cacache/tmp/git-clone-91a948fe

npm ERR! /Users/rich/.npm/_cacache/tmp/git-clone-91a948fe/.git: Permission denied

I went into the file system and manually set the /Users/rich/.npm/_cacache/tmp directory to wide open but no matter what I continue to get this permission error. Does anyone know how I override this error to get this thing installed finally?


Thanks in advance,

Hi Damian I did everything I could to uninstall and remove Node/NPM/Angular/CLI. I followed these instructions:

cd /Users

sudo npm uninstall -g angular-cli

sudo npm uninstall --save-dev angular-cli

To completely uninstall node + npm is to do the following:
  1. go to /usr/local/lib and delete any node and node_modules.
  2. go to /usr/local/include and delete any node and node_modules directory.
  3. if you installed with brew install node, then run brew uninstall node in your terminal.
  And then I performed a fresh install Node/NPM/Angular/CLI. When I type sudo ng -v into my command line I get the following:

    _                      _                 ____ _     ___

   /   _ __   __ _ _   _| | __ _ _ __     / ___| |   |_ _|

  / △ | '_ / _` | | | | |/ _` | '__|   | |   | |    | |

/ ___ | | | | (_| | |_| | | (_| | |      | |___| |___ | |

/_/   __| |_|__, |__,_|_|__,_|_|       ____|_____|___|



Angular CLI: 1.6.3

Node: 8.9.4

OS: darwin x64

Angular: 5.1.3

... animations, common, compiler, compiler-cli, core, forms

... http, language-service, platform-browser

... platform-browser-dynamic, router

@angular/cli: 1.6.3

@angular-devkit/build-optimizer: 0.0.36

@schematics/angular: 0.1.11

@schematics/schematics: 0.0.11

typescript: 2.4.2

webpack: 3.10.0

  I then followed your instructions as per above and I encounter the same exact permissions issue when I get to step 4. I typed
sudo npm install git+ --save
  and I continue to receive the following error message:
Richs-Mac-Pro:angular01 rich$ sudo npm install git+ --save

npm ERR! code 1

npm ERR! Command failed: /usr/local/bin/git clone -q /Users/rich/.npm/_cacache/tmp/git-clone-6780b845

npm ERR! /Users/rich/.npm/_cacache/tmp/git-clone-6780b845/.git: Permission denied
I went into the /Users/rich/.npm/_cacache/tmp directory and set the directory to full access and tried again. I got the same error again. Guys I know this is a problem on my end, I'm doing something wrong and I continue to do something wrong, likely with my installation, I'm not sure. But I'm doing everything you're telling me to do and it hasn't worked, and I'm stuck at the same exact place. Could we please arrange a call? I did pay for the extra support in my purchase of MDB Pro. I've put in so, so much time into your project already and I haven't even gotten it installed. Please, it's time to try something new. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it. Rich
