Node.js Question

Error with npm install - a pre-gyp error

I wanted to install this angular 2 calendar using npm. Tried to use npm to install it and then downloaded it and tried to install it. In both cases its failed.

I am on windows and I previously got this error trying to install angular2 CLI. Now I am getting the same error for this package and I am not sure how to rectify it. I tried to unistall the CLI and then clear the cache and that didnt work.

Could some one have a look at the error and let me know what steps I need to do to rectify this..

The error as it appears on the cmd is as follows:

C:\Users\simon\SPA\ANGULAR2 CALENDAR EXAMPLE>npm install

I am on node.js 6.6.0 and npm 3.10.3

EDIT:

I was hoping Luiz answer...

npm install -g node-gyp


would work but unfortunately, whist the install worked perfectly for gym.. I got these errors.. as follows...

There appears to be more issues.. any more ideas

Answer

I had a similar problem on windows, installing node-gyp globally removed those errors.

# before installing node-gyp on windows
npm install --global --production windows-build-tools

# install node-gyp globally
npm install -g node-gyp
