$ npm -v

$ node -v

This seems to be a problem with the CoffeeScript package but the output does say to report the issue here so that's what I'm doing.


I should also note that this leaves a brunch directory in my node_modules but the package is not actually usable and required files are not there.


If you come up with a reliable way to reproduce this, update this ticket. I just ran npm install brunch myself (a couple times) without issue on a Linux vm, so I'm not sure what you're running into.


Ok I deleted ~/.npm and it works now.

Closing as resolved!
