Installing KeystoneJS on Cloud9



I have tried a few times to install It has not worked at all…
Not sure why.

This is what happens:

npm@3.5.1 /home/ubuntu/.nvm/versions/node/v4.1.1/lib/node_modules/npm
brodriguez_jtap:~/workspace/www $ sudo npm install generator-keystone
npm WARN deprecated CSSselect@0.4.1: the module is now available as 'css-select'
npm WARN deprecated CSSwhat@0.4.7: the module is now available as 'css-what'
extract                   ▀ ╢████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████████░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░░╟

And it does not finish… then…
I run yo keystone and go through the prompt and it says:


Your KeystoneJS project is ready to go!

To start your new website, run "node keystone".

brodriguez_jtap:~/workspace/www $ node keystone
    throw err;

Error: Cannot find module 'grappling-hook'

Because it did not install all dependent module. Now i have installed 1 by 1 as lists the errors… but i make it to a point where i can install any other anymore and it still doesnt run.

Any insight would be great! Trying to set up a Dev environment for this CMS.


Hi there!

Thank you for writing in. I recorded a quick video to help install KeystoneJS on a Cloud9 workspace:

I hope this helps.



@mutahhir Hi Mutahhir, could you please help me as well. I have a KeystoneJS app. I have done some steps as you did in the video, so my app is running on, but then it is not reachable in the preview. Can you help me please to debug this?
