This might sound like a crazy question, but where you online when you ran that command? It looks like you were unable to connect to to pull in the remote repo.

Ah I think the problem might be with using the GitHub URLs for dependencies when GitHub is down. We should be able to fix this to some degree. If you try the same thing again later on it should work.

@MakiMark, @btkarthick
This problem can be fixed by installing MsysGit and cleaning %appdata%\npm-cache.
Make sure git is in PATH.
(FYI: I had the same problem, the problem was Git was not installed)

I encountered the same issue. Git must use a port that's blocked by the firewall I'm behind, as replacing git:// with https:// allowed me to clone the repo. Can this be changed somewhere?

Looks like the first dependency for harp, terraform, has jade and minify dependencies specified with git:// URLs.

...which was fixed in that terraform commit (64915d3), and apparently was never merged in, since it still shows up with git:// URLs in terraform's package.json.
