Here are some solutions to frequently encountered problems.

EACCESS errors during installation

These errors can occur, if npm was installed without the use of a version manager.

Refer to this article for ways to resolve the issue.

command not found: everdev

This error may happen because PATH environment variable was not correctly updated to contain path to Node.js binary.

If you use Linux, ensure the following command is in your ~/.bashrc for bash shell or ~/.zshrc for zsh shell:

export PATH=~/.npm-global/bin:$PATH

If you have installed Node.js using Homebrew on MacOS, npm binaries could be found in /usr/local/share/npm/bin. So, in your ~/.zshrc file add the following:

export PATH=/usr/local/share/npm/bin:$PATH

If you use Windows, add path to NodeJS bin directory via environment variables settings dialogue and relaunch console window.

Additionally, make sure permissions are alright.
