Hello you beautiful people,

I have gotten a new computer and wanted to jump back into making lack luster projects with my photon. I want to install all the tools on the new (to me) computer but am running into issues.

The issue comes when I type
npm install -g particle-cli

I get this error code after the command line does its thing:

gyp ERR! build error 
gyp ERR! stack Error: `make` failed with exit code: 2

from what i’ve seen it seems like a permissions issue. Any insight is greaty appreciated.
Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5
Homebrew version - 2.1.6

What if you try:

sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm particle-cli

#3

I tried that to no avail.

Turns out i was able to solve it using the particle getting started docs. I cannot find the curt that i called in the command line to reference here but it worked without an issue.

Thanks for the help
