    Hi,

    I am trying to load Gulp via terminal and I get the following error message, No such file or directory. Not a Terminal user per say, just trying to load Web Starter Kit. I have tried the following

    Code:
    davids-iMac-3:~ david$ $ sudo npm install --global gulp
    -bash: $: command not found
    Davids-iMac-3:~ david$ $ sudo npm install --global gulp
    -bash: $: command not found
    Davids-iMac-3:~ david$ echo $PATH
    /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin
    Davids-iMac-3:~ david$ cat ~/.profile
    cat: /Users/david/.profile: No such file or directory
    Davids-iMac-3:~ david$ /bin/cat  ~/.bashrc
    cat: /Users/david/.bashrc: No such file or directory
    Davids-iMac-3:~ david$ /bin/cat  ~/.login
    cat: /Users/david/.login: No such file or directory
    Davids-iMac-3:~ david$ /bin/cat ~/.bash_profile
    cat: /Users/david/.bash_profile: No such file or directory
    How to I fix this so that I can install Gulp?

    Thanks

    In your first examples it seems you are adding the dollar sign as part of the command. Are you pasting this from somewhere? Because "$" is part of the prompt, not something that should be typed out. Terminal just informs you that there is no command called $.

    Terminal Issue -No such file or directory

    Hi

    I have managed to load Gulp (through logging in as a root admin) and the web starter kit but after then you have to load the app: cd web-starter-kit/app to get it to work and it says:

    Code:
    -bash: cd: web-starter-kit/app: No such file or directory
    It is not loading the local dependencies Web Starter Kit requires:
    $ cd web-starter-kit $ nom install
    When I enter the above, I get:

    Code:
    [10:34:55] Local version undefined
    Davids-iMac-3:app david$ cd- web-starter-kit $ npm install
    -bash: cd-: command not found

    Code:
    Davids-iMac-3:~ david$ git clone https://github.com/google/web-starter-kit.git

    Perhaps you can try: ls -l and see what comes up.

    You have added a minus sign to cd, it should not be cd- I suspect you would get the same error as above if you removed it though, that the file/folder doesn't exist.

    Well, you showed two different error messages so it can't really be the same issue. Did you try ls? Are you in the same directory you cloned to? pwd will show you the current working directory. Perhaps try: mdfind web-starter-kit

    Yes the directory is david staff and I found the web-starter-kit under /Users/david/web-starter-kit but it looks incomplete as it has not installed the Gulp tools.

    I found this article http://www.mycreativedirectory.com/?p=5596 which gives more information about how to install the web kit.

    I t says

    Lastly, ensure the git and npm commands are accessible. Type the command below to test whether git and nom are functioning.

    git --version nom -v

    I get git --version npm -v
    git version 1.8.5.2 (Apple Git-48) not the nom -v version
