Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-13588) cordova-create fails to copy template on Windows when nodejs global node_modules are installed in a different directory than the default one (AppData\Roaming)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-13588?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16257166#comment-16257166

Jan Piotrowski (Sujan) commented on CB-13588:
---------------------------------------------

There is no supervisor. I am a volunteer contributor to the Open Source project Apache Cordova
which you are using and creating tickets/issues for.

But I get you don't want my help with this issue, which is totally fine. 
I will stop replying to your comments. Good luck.

> If the npm is run without the wrong(*) content in npmrc, then as you may see, 'cordova
create' fails, 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 (CB-13587), 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 is manifested in all three (**) solutions presented here, in two of them even despite
the required '-g' install.
> (*)  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 method, for details see CB-13587)
