Just installed vows in OS X 10.8.2 as specified at Then I tried to run vows CLI according to the reference Not surprisingly it did not work since vows executable was not on PATH environment variable. After I added vows installation bin directory to PATH with

export PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.npm/vows/0.6.4/package/bin 

I got the following exception when running vows.

$ vows 

    throw err;
Error: Cannot find module 'eyes'

I'm not sure that this is a bug and perhaps I've missed something during installation so I'd appreciate any good advise on the subject.


Try npm install vows -g. I'll update the website later. Leaving it open for now.


npm install vows -g helps. Thank you!
