When I'm installing nowjs in my computer (Windows 7). I write "npm install now" and it just throws an error. There's a part where it is saying "npm ERR! firstname.lastname@example.org install: 'make' "
I think the problem is that it is running
"npm install node-proxy"
and I think that it should be
"npm install nodejs-proxy"
PS:Sorry about my poor English but I'm from Spain
Try installing from the windows branch here on github -- npm install https://github.com/Flotype/now/zipball/windows should do what you want.
npm install https://github.com/Flotype/now/zipball/windows
The problem is that node-proxy relies on a C++ extension, and so you generally can't install it without cygwin (or something -- I haven't used Windows for development in a while). In that branch, the binary's already compiled and ready to go.
I had a similar problem, caused by a missing compiler..
I just installed the build-essentials and everything worked fine!
Eh, not quite the same -- chusb40 seems to be on Windows as opposed to Linux.
Also, a bit has changed in Node in the past year (native Windows support, esp).
I had this problem on linux, right..
But the first hint from @chusb40 is wrong.
I have finally solve this issue by manually putting all the files in the nodejs modules folder. But I have also try to install nowjs on an other computer (also Windows 7) and I'm just getting exactly the same error.
Um. Did the command I posted earlier work?
I get same problem on Mac OS X. For me it worked like this...
You need to install node-proxy before.
