SOLVED Pipeline Build Node JS fails with "permission denied, mkdir '/root/.npm'" Edited

Doing a pipeline build with Node (image: node:10.15.3). First script command is to install a global dependency. That fails when installing one of the sub dependencies and I'm dead in the water. Apparently it cannot access root folder. I'm not a Linux pro, just enough to be dangerous, so I'm scratching my head at this noise. Any thoughts or suggestions?

ERR! sharp EACCES: permission denied, mkdir '/root/.npm'

Solved. I was a dumbass and was installing the wrong thing.

Hey @Peter Kowalczyk I am having the same issue and I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong, can you elaborate a bit more and what you were installing and what you are installing now?

The best way I found to install NPM packages globally with Bitbucket Pipelines was to set the user to root:

- npm -g config set user root
- npm install -g packagename
