I used the node windows installer v0.8.3 to install nodejs. When I try to install express like this:
npm install express
It's not working. I think that is because my company is using a proxy, so I downloaded express from github https://github.com/visionmedia/express, but I don't know how to install.
I unzip the file and put them in F/express/. Please help me? I'm on Windows
When I try to install from F:/express/ using the following commands
cd F:/express npm install ./express
npm install .
I get the following error:
error: connect ETIMEDOUT at errnoException (net.js:776:11) at Object.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (net.js:767:19)
And when when I try to do
npm install F:/express
firstname.lastname@example.org prepublish F:/express/ npm prune
followed by lots of http get messages and then the same error
It would probably be most convenient long-term to configure NPM to use the aforementioned proxy through one of the following methods (In the following, replace $PROXY with your proxy in the form $PROTOCOL://$DOMAIN:$PORT (e.g. http://proxy.server:80))
A. Set the environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy to $PROXY
npm set proxy $PROXY npm set https-proxy $PROXY
express itself has a lot of dependencies which I believe npm also tries to retrieve if you issue
npm install. I think you should just configure proxy properly => http://jjasonclark.com/how-to-setup-node-behind-web-proxy?
