Hey, I've tried to install three things from source now, but after I close Terminal (Mac), they seem to 'disappear' and I can't use the commands that worked before.
The first was Node.js. I cloned the git repo into my Downloads folder, and followed the commands
./configure make make install
node worked. After closing and reopening
-bash: node: command not found.
The second was npm, which never worked, no matter which way I installed it. First I tried the one-liner:
curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh but that didn't work, and cloning the git repo and
sudo make install didn't work either.
The third was CoffeeScript.js which, after downloading, and compiling, didn't work either. Obviously installing it via
npm wouldn't work either!
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated as I may be making some silly mistake.
