Cannot find module 'coffee-script'


Question

Trying to get a basic site set up with TowerJS as a test, but ran into this error when running the scaffold generator.

Macbook:app john$ tower generate scaffold Post title:string body:text belongsTo:user
{ [Error: Cannot find module 'coffee-script'] code: 'MODULE_NOT_FOUND' }

module.js:340
    throw err;
          ^

Accepted Answer

Update your package.json file

"coffee-script": "~1.6.3"

on "devDependencies" and update the npm again

npm update

the same issue fixed for me

Had similar problem when using grunt, I've removed

node_modules 

folder from my root folder and run

npm install

That fixed my problem
