Unable to install node couchbase

Posted by: admin November 30, 2017 Leave a comment


The couchbase builderror.log file is completely empty. Everything installs fine with npm install, no errors on screen or in the log.

Relevant details:

$ echo $PATH
$ node -v
$ python -V
Python 2.7.6

Starting the app (node index.js or npm start):

Check this thread from couchbase forum.

It seems that your environment is lacking some prerequisites of node-gyp

Then check node-gyp‘s official readme.

May the odds be ever in your favor
