npm node enconding


I want to npm install the following validate .json

{ "name": "node-todo", "version": "0.0.0", "description": "Simple todo application", "main": "server.js", "dependencies": { "express": "~3.4.4", "mongoose": "~3.6.2" }, "private": true }

but the npm install doesn't seem to work because I even cant npm install a sample json from <a href="http://package-json-validator.com/" rel="nofollow">http://package-json-validator.com/</a>

I installed npm and nodejs with the following commands

echo 'export PATH=$HOME/local/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc . ~/.bashrc mkdir ~/local mkdir ~/node-latest-install cd ~/node-latest-install curl http://nodejs.org/dist/node-latest.tar.gz | tar xz --strip-components=1 ./configure --prefix=~/local make install # ok, fine, this step probably takes more than 30 seconds... curl https://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

Now I want to use npm install but the shell gives me this npm ERR! install Couldn't read dependencies npm ERR! Failed to parse json npm ERR! Unexpected token / npm ERR! Failed to parse package.json data. npm ERR! package.json must be actual JSON, not just JavaScript. npm ERR! npm ERR! This is not a bug in npm. npm ERR! Tell the package author to fix their package.json file. JSON.parse

npm ERR! System Darwin 13.0.0 npm ERR! node -v v0.10.22 npm ERR! npm -v 1.3.14 npm ERR! code EJSONPARSE npm ERR! npm ERR! Additional logging details can be found in: npm ERR! not ok code 0

I'm using Sublime and saved the json as a UTF-8 (without the BOM tag)


Assuming you are running ubuntu or that you are using the aptitude package manager

apt-get install -y python-software-properties python g++ make add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js apt-get install nodejs apt-get install npm

Then run this when needed to update the sources.list and install the latest version.

apt-get update apt-get upgrade nodejs

If you want to downgrade node simply use

apt-get install nodejs={version number}


<strong>Linux Installation - node.js</strong>:


Via package manager for many distros:<br /><a href="https://github.com/joyent/node/wiki/Installing-Node.js-via-package-manager" rel="nofollow">https://github.com/joyent/node/wiki/Installing-Node.js-via-package-manager</a>


</li> <li>

Via download binaries (this worked for me after many problems with other solutions)

a) download from <a href="https://nodejs.org/download/release/latest/" rel="nofollow">https://nodejs.org/download/release/latest/</a><br /> b) move to /usr/local/

Note: To avoid permissions problems when install none modules globally (npm install -g ...) you must to move files preserving your ownership.


i) Unpack as normal user, ie, <strong>not sudo</strong>:<br /> tar -zxvf node-package.tar.gz

ii) Move properly (-p same as -<strong>preserve</strong>=mode,ownership,timestamps):<br /> sudo cp -rp node-package/* /usr/local/ && rm -rf node-package

<strong>Linux Installation - npm</strong>


Be sure you have node.js already installed (node -v):


curl <a href="https://www.npmjs.org/install.sh" rel="nofollow">https://www.npmjs.org/install.sh</a> | sh

Note: <em>www.npmjs.org/install.sh</em> is the new URL after February 2014
