So in the process of building my toolchain installer (shameless plug ), I thought I’d build a separate CLI installer to make that process as easy as possible for new people. However, I’m a little unclear as to the prerequisites for the CLI. According to the docs, all that is needed is NodeJS (which I just tried on Win7, and it seems like the CLI installed fine). However, I know that there have been issues with installation in the past, and the support page lists Python and MSBuildTools as prerequisites as well. Could someone clarify for me? Thanks!
The pain comes from
node-serialport package that varies way too much on Windows so it’s hard to tell whether the prerequisite is needed for a general installer.
Well isn’t that just a pain in the rear… Well, I can always check the exit code of a
npm install -g serialport and see what happens. Thanks!
