After npm install -g @angular/cli this is what I recive:

From https://www.npmjs.com/package/@angular/cli#installation

Install Globablly

npm install -g @angular/cli

Install Locally

npm install @angular/cli

In Linux, every time you install something, when that something is Global means you need root access and when something is Local just with your user is enough

To translate that into commands


sudo npm install -g @angular/cli


npm install @angular/cli

Permission Denied

You can see what is the problem clearly in the log

npm ERR! Error: EACCES: permission denied, access '/usr/local/lib'

Probably the installer wants to write there but can's because only the root user can

  • Thanks man.Appreciate your help.It's working now. – Idorasi Paul Nov 29 '18 at 11:36
