Make sure you have all the required Node dependencies available:
npm install -g yo gulp-cli generator-angular-fullstack
If you're using MongoDB (which you probably are), you'll have to install it from here.
You should then run the
mongod process, which is in
<install_path>/MongoDB/Server/<version>/bin/. You'll also want a
somewhere for Mongo to put your database in. It would be wise to make a script to automate this command, and maybe even run this script on
your computer's startup. Example:
#!/bin/bash /var/lib/mongo/server/3.2/bin/mongod --dbpath /data/db
node-gyp is a cross-platform command-line tool written in Node.js for compiling native addon modules for Node.js. You'll need it for things like
Read through the Installation section of the
node-gyp readme. Basically you'll need Python 2.7,
make, and a C/C++ compiler (like GCC on unix, Xcode on OS X, or Visual Studio tools on Windows). To tell npm to use Python 2.7 (if you also have a different version installed), run
npm config set python /path/to/executable/python2.7. Here's a snapshot of the instructions from their readme:
v3.x.xis not supported)

npm install --global --production windows-build-toolsfrom an elevated PowerShell or CMD.exe (run as Administrator).
Option 2: Install tools and configuration manually:
Visual C++ Build Environment:
Option 1: Install Visual C++ Build Tools using the Default Install option.
Option 2: Install Visual Studio 2015 (or modify an existing installation) and select Common Tools for Visual C++ during setup. This also works with the free Community and Express for Desktop editions.
:bulb: [Windows Vista / 7 only] requires .NET Framework 4.5.1
Install Python 2.7 (
v3.x.x is not supported), and run
npm config set python python2.7 (or see below for further instructions on specifying the proper Python version and path.)
npm config set msvs_version 2015
