Bower install permission denied

Hi, I’m having troubles installing bower dependencies, e.g. when I run on a new project’s terminal

npm install bower
bower install Polymer/polymer

I get the following error:

EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/etc/service/watcher/a1ede98d632f45d7eabbd58dacff426e/bower'

Am I missing some configuration on the project?

Hello @valdrinkoshi,

it looks like we are experiencing issues with this npm bug. While we figure out a fix, you can set TMPDIR=/tmp in your .env file.

Let us know if this solves your issues :slight_smile:


Oh nice! that definitely solved the issue - thanks!
