Run a global program from meteor npm

Hello guys,

I’ve just met Meteor and would like to try my new app. After some researchs on the web, I finally cloned the MeteorChef base project ( to start with.

After having changed the release version ( to, everything compiles and seems to work.

The only thing I can’t do is using the chimp testing framework. As I understood, node / npm is installed with meteor so no need to install it elsewhere, but when installing chimp (installed it globally with the meteor npm install chimp --globally), I can’t execute it from a shell, telling me that chimp is not installed.

As I am on windows 10, I wanted to know if someone had the same problem, and finally if someone could help.

Thanks a lot,


Did you type --global (or globally)?

I typed --global sorry.

For information, in ~/AppData/Roaming/npm-cache/chimp, I have the following directories:

$ ls -l
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 1 Maidos 197121 0 juin  28 19:14 0.34.1/
drwxr-xr-x 1 Maidos 197121 0 sept.  7 11:45 0.39.4/
drwxr-xr-x 1 Maidos 197121 0 sept.  7 12:15 0.40.6/

Do I have to type something like meteor npm run chimp or meteor npm run -g chimp?
