Right now the audit script provides some lightweight version of https://github.com/yeoman/yeoman/wiki/Manual-Install

But most people just continually run that and fumble through installation. I think we could do two things to improve the installation experience:

  1. Provide more prose detail from Manual Install within the output
  2. Provide some bash oneliner recommendations for easy installs, stolen from old-installer.sh

So if an item isn't present there will probably be ~6 line of prose and commands to help you get it installed quickly without navigating to sites and following their own guides. Of course there is a risk in providing the commands and folks clobbering their system but I think the 80% audience would get a net win.

@tomlane you're probably busy but wanted to ping you anyway
@hemanth whatcha think?

Sure thing, will see what I can do.

Edit: Something like this? I'm limited to what I can do since i'm on a windows machine ATM. https://github.com/tomlane/yeoman/commit/d9bce00e2c091e03749a906c70533193a16337cc also how not to name a commit facepalm

@paulirish Yes those improvements are very much needed, we can make set of one liners and based on the OS, we might disaply the needed one liner.

Would those deps installations (more than an one liner) bash << $(curl yeoman.io/$dep) would be useful/doable?
