Setting Up your Mac with Ionic and Cordova

Setting Up your Mac with Ionic and Cordova

3:11
In this lesson, we install Node.js (with Node Package Manager) as well as Ionic. With just a couple command prompt commands, we gain access to the powerful Ionic command-line utility, which in turn installs Apache Cordova to aid in connecting our web apps to our mobile device’s native functionality. We then create an Ionic app in just a few more commands.

I feel it would be helpful make user aware that you can you setup npm without having to use sudo on a mac by configuring the npm prefix and updating $PATH. It probably should be the recommended option in my opinion as well. It's also nice to know this up front before you go installing it, then have to go back and clean it out like I had to do when doing the JWT tutorial : )
