how to install missing npm?

Hi, following the Scott Hanselman post I installed the tools and tried to run ghost, but i see that all the npm in are marked as missing and fails to run.
How can restore them?

ok, found, open the folder and type npm install. may be this step added to the build when some npm is missing?

Hi luca,

This feature will be in a future release. It just didn't make it on time for Alpha.

For now, as you've discovered, an alternative is to invoke npm install from a command prompt.

Hi Luca,


I put in a commit for this the other day so it should hopefully appear in a dev build fairly soon:

Similarly I've also added npm update and npm uninstall to the context menu:

Thanks,


Bart
