I’ve been following these instructions to get cli installed on MacOS.
I ran into the EACCES issue in the Troubleshooting section, then ran
sudo chown -R $USER /usr/local/lib/node_modules to fix it.
The next time around I’m getting a different EACCES error.
npm ERR! Error: EACCES: permission denied, symlink ‘…/lib/node_modules/edge-impulse-cli/build/serial-daemon/cli/uploader.js’ -> ‘/usr/local/bin/edge-impulse-uploader’
I also ran
sudo chown -R $USER ~/.npm for good measure, but I keep getting the same results.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hi @ctcarroll, If
/usr/local/lib/node_modules/edge-impulse-cli/build/ was created you can link manually:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/node_modules/edge-impulse-cli/build/serial-daemon/cli/uploader.js /usr/local/bin/edge-impulse-uploader
sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/node_modules/edge-impulse-cli/build/serial-daemon/cli/daemon.js /usr/local/bin/edge-impulse-daemon
Otherwise, it seems that
/usr/local/bin is owned by root, not by your user. Not sure if that’s a deliberate choice (on my machine /usr/local/bin is owned by me), but I guess you have two options here.
/usr/local/bin in the same way, so
npm can link in there.
- Install via
sudo npm install edge-impulse-cli -g. Although this might screw up some npm permissions.
But thread carefully as these will modify some permissions.
