I am trying to fix my npm permissions.
If you're doing a fresh install of node on Mac OS you can avoid this problem altogether by using the Homebrew package manager...
If I'm doing a fresh install? Does it not work if I already have node installed? I would be willing to reinstall node if I could find the proper way to uninstall it.
Please provide instructions how to install homebrew on a Mac with existing npm and node already installed.
Mac OSX v10.10.5 Yosemite
