Helpful Tips

1.) If you are having problems running bower install, check to make sure the git protocol is not blocked by your firewall. To configure the default to use https instead of the git protocol, use the following commands:

To set https as default:

git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://

To undo global configs:

git config --global --unset

2.) If you are experiencing errors, the following commands are helpful to resetting your environment.

  • Delete the node modules directory in your project root
  • Clean your npm cache with → sudo npm cache clean
  • Reinstall with super user privileges → sudo npm install

3.) We utilized the awesome work of the Stamen caliparks.org folks and their node harvester git branch to gather Flickr pictures of parks. Check it out here: https://github.com/stamen/caliparks.org/tree/node-harvester
