Install node npm grunt without having to sudo [ yeoman ]

yeoman

After tryng different solutions, this one works for me.

Remember: never use SUDO, like I did the first time and like is written elsewhere 😉

[bash]
echo ‘export PATH=$HOME/local/bin:$PATH’ >> ~/.bashrc
. ~/.bashrc
mkdir ~/local
mkdir ~/node-latest-install
cd ~/node-latest-install
curl http://nodejs.org/dist/node-latest.tar.gz | tar xz –strip-components=1
./configure –prefix=~/local
make install # ok, fine, this step probably takes more than 30 seconds…
curl https://www.npmjs.org/install.sh | sh
npm install -g grunt
[/bash]
