Npn install g- firebase-tools

hi all,

I’m trying to install npm g- firebase-tools on the command line (mac) but I keep getting this error

npm ERR! code E404
npm ERR! 404 Not Found - GET - Not found
npm ERR! 404
npm ERR! 404 ‘g-@latest’ is not in the npm registry.

Any idea how to resolve this?

Check the docs. Copy and paste from the docs to avoid errors.

npm install -g firebase-tools

You got the g and the - swapped places.

I got that installed but when I try to login I get the following:

(base) Paolos-iMac:~ paolo$ npm install -g firebase-tools

`/Users/paolo/.npm-global/bin/firebase -> /Users/paolo/.npm-global/lib/node_modules/firebase-tools/lib/bin/firebase.js

  • firebase-tools@7.4.0

updated 1 package in 7.987s

(base) Paolos-iMac:~ paolo$ firebase login

-bash: firebase: command not found`

I just typed it backwards sorry about that. I did run -g.

Check your $PATH variable. Maybe the directory for the global npm installs isn’t there?
