OK, I did some digging around and I am trying to get some clarification on how to think about the meteor global repository in the
I posted “Meteor and the npm global repository” to the forums.
I filed a bug: “‘meteor npm list -g’ not working on windows (looking in wrong directory)”
So far what I can gather is that:
node-gypcomes with the v1.4
- you need to make sure all the pre-req’s are installed so the
node-gypwill be able to use the correct compiler for your environment.
- installing code into your
dev_bundleis not recommended. You should follow the instructions as listed:
npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
meteor npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
to get mine to work, I did:
npm install -g node-gyp
my pre-requisites were already in place.
I think there are some unanswered questions here:
- If I install a package to the global node repository, will it override the
node-gyppre-requisites need to be installed in the
dev_bundlerepository to make the
node-gypwork? Maybe this is an exception to the overall guidance.
