Hey guys, I'm having some issues installing npm packages globally, where they install, but oddly it doesn't create an executable in any of the default paths. As a result, local installations fail because bash says command not found. Has anyone come across this? For now I'm having to manually create symlinks to fix it - but this doesnt seem right for a self-contained cookbook

@BarthV that wasn't 5 min! Much appreciated. I've posted my current workaround if others come across this issue.

I was busy @home :)
We'll discuss again for managing this kind of "generic" symlink
but it seems really specific to each app/ needs

For sure
I'll refactor my work around at some point to try and be more generic
