Where is Node.js when you install Meteor?


Hi there,

I’m new to Meteor, and it’s just so awesome so far. One thing though - where is the node.js that it runs on installed? I’m trying to use npm, but it didn’t add that to any path I can see. Is there a way to access the node.js instance or nom that gets installed with meteor? Or am I supposed to install a separate (second) copy of node.js somewhere (through home-brew for example)?

If I’m just completely off the mark, please set me straight!

Does no one know where the npm command is? :slight_smile:


You should just brew install node to get npm.


Thanks. Is there a reason Meteor uses it’s own copy of node instead?


There are probably numerous reasons, one being it’s pinned to v0.10.36
