Tutorial: Particle-cli on Mac OSX [26 Sep 2015]


#41

I’m still struggling with this. Completely uninstalled/reinstalled node. Tried all of the above tricks (installing node-gyp and serialport) but no luck. One thing I see in here that I don’t see in the other posts is the traceback.

Any ideas???

~$ sudo npm install -g spark-cli

#42

It’s usually the npm serial-port module that fails to install properly. All the modules are pretty decent.

What’s your mac osx version?

Might need xCode CLI - https://github.com/voodootikigod/node-serialport#mac-os-x

Try sudo npm install -g serialport


#43

xcode command line tools are installed. Can’t install serial port (output below). This is happening with both a Mavericks and Yosemite machine. Does the syntax error mean anything to you?

#44

Did you fire up xcode once and accept the terms? That worked for some folks.


#45

Yes. I use XCode for most of my development. I also double checked install of the command line tools. Still no luck.

I’m still concerned about the “invalid syntax” error. Does that ring a bell with anyone?


#46

Looks like the problem was with the Python version. I upgraded to 2.8 and it works now.


#47

I am having similar issues: spark-cli install fails at serialport@1.4.5, though the errors are slightly different (log below).

I have recently upgraded OS X to 10.10, updated Xcode, reinstalled the Xcode command line tools, and accepted the terms in the Xcode GUI. I’m able to install serialport 1.4.6 through npm, though spark-cli still tries to add 1.4.5.

Any ideas?? Thanks in advance…

npm install -g spark-cli

serialport@1.4.5 install /usr/local/lib/node_modules/spark-cli/node_modules/serialport
node-pre-gyp install --fallback-to-build

#48

I’ve got the same problem…OSX 10.10. I’ve tried all the fixes. I can install serialport with no errors, symlink doesn’t change anything, Xcode installed properly and agreement accepted…

I need help.


#49

Can you try sudo npm install -g serialport followed by installation of spark cli?


#50

Same error as before

#51

I can’t help much since my OS is still on Mavericks and yet to upgrade to Yosemite,

@zachary installed on his new Mac recently and might be able to provide some clue on this.

So sudo npm install -g serialport gives no error?

Can you try sudo npm install -g serialport@1.4.5 just to be sure that is installs fine since that’s the version specified for spark-cli at this point in time? :wink:

I found some similar issue filed for serialport: https://github.com/voodootikigod/node-serialport/issues/405#issuecomment-60672459


#52

Yeah sure enough that fails with the same errors. For a minute, because of that link, I thought that maybe I had installed homebrew’s gcc but I checked and am running Apple’s version.


#53

I found a solution that worked for me! After some reading and working my way through those errors it was apparently a problem with node-gyp. I found a .node-gyp folder in my home directory so in an act of desperation I removed it.

rm -r ~/.node-gyp

I then tried to reinstall spark-cli and it worked and functions properly! I’m not sure what the ramifications of removing the ~/.node-gyp directory – there don’t yet seem to be any – but time should tell. I wasn’t too worried about it because I had removed all of my other node modules in preparation for removing and reinstalling node and npm as suggested elsewhere.

Anyway, for those frustrated by the same problem and willing to give it a shot I hope it works for you and doesn’t screw anything else up :smile:


#54

Seems the serial package was fixed, I was able to install spark-cli without any magic, just sudo npm install -g spark-cli. Same command failed with above errors a week ago.

Edit: on Yosemite


#55

No. When I run it without a sudo, I get “Please try running this command again as root/Administrator.”. Although either way it still fails, for me.


#56

Did you do sudo npm install -g spark-cli then?


#57

Yes. That doesn’t give the error about needing to be an Admin., but I get another set of errors, which I’m still working on:

#58

Can you try the following:

1.) rm -r ~/.node-gyp

2.) sudo npm install -g serialport --verbose


#59

given this error:
env: node: No such file or directory

It makes me wonder if the super user on your system has node’s location in its $PATH

how did you install node?
what is the output of which node?
what is the output of sudo echo $PATH?


#60

@MarkSHarrisTX

in regards to this error: Please try running this command again as root/Administrator.
