Boss Machine Project - Error When Running npm install


I was getting an error on the Boss Machine project in the back-end engineering course. When trying to run the npm install after downloading the project, I kept getting errors. It seems like a common problem, but when I emailed Codecademy, they didn’t bother to get back to me.

Anyway, I have found a workaround for anyone else struggling with it:

instead of running npm install, run:

npm install --force

Once that has completed, it will require an audit. So, run:

npm audit fix --force
