Node #

For installation you will need to have both Node and NVM installed. To know if you have it available on your system, open up a command line and run:

Terminal Created with Sketch.
Command line
node -v

If a number comes back, you have node installed! If an error comes back, you should first install Node on your system.

NodeJS documenation

NVM #

To check if NVM is installed on your system, run:

Terminal Created with Sketch.
Command line
nvm --version

Same principle here, if an error comes back, have a look at the NVM documentation to install it on your system.

Gulp (optional) #

Compony is using Gulp v4.0.2. If you want to use the simple version of the Compony Gulp commands, you could install this version of Gulp globally by running: 

Terminal Created with Sketch.
Command line
npm install --global gulp-cli

However if you wish to use the Gulp version straight from the node_modules folder so you don't need to install this specific version of Gulp, that's possible too. And we'll cover that in the Gulp commands chapter
