Subject [jira] [Updated] (CB-13588) cordova-create fail to copy template on Windows when nodejs global node_modules where it is installed in is in a different directory than the default one (AppData\Roaming)
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2017 15:00:00 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-13588?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Lukas Plachy updated CB-13588:
------------------------------
    Description: 
If the npm is run without the wrong(*) content in npmrc, then as you may see, cordova create
fails again in the very same way, even when the npm is allready able to work as expected.
[^correct__g_install_fail_npmrc.png]
If you are not comfort with the "local install" override, or the npmrc content deletition,
then you might find the command '*npm install -g cordova --prefix D:\mynodejsdirectory*' more
compliant with correct usage. And as you may see ([^correct__g_install_fail_using_prefix.png]),
the error which this ticket is about, remains in place in all three (**) soltuions I have
presented you here, despite the '-g' install. So I still have to insist on the fact, that
there is someting wrong in Cordova code.

(*)  incorrect handling of npmrc file containing the string 'prefix=${APPDATA}\npm' in contrast
to the expected behvaior as described in https://docs.npmjs.com/cli/npm#directories
(**) The third one is to install the module into the global node_modules in the nodejs installation
directory in the same manner as a local install (eg. cd into my_nodejs_install_dir and doing
an 'npm install cordova') which however due to a higher reason has been agreed as an unsupported
action to d, for details see CB-13587)
