for a bit of background, i come from design, so im not that much savvy with these new technologies kids use these days. i know enough to keep my head above the water though.
ive long been looking for an editor who would help me keep my code clean (been through espresso, sublime, brackets) and now Atom is steadily growing on me.
one thing that goes right over my head though is installing said dependencies on a mac.
What ive done so far:
i couldnt install the atom-beautify package directly from withing the program, so i downloaded and put it in its proper folder (/.atom/packages) as ive understood with some google-fu
now, however, even when trying to beautify some strictly html document (which i assumed would need no dependencies, like php_beautifier) i am presented with an error
Error: Cannot find module 'lodash' at Module._resolveFilename (module.js:351:15) at Function.Module._resolveFilename (/Applications/Atom.app/Contents/Resources/app/src/module-cache.js:383:52) ... this goes on for a bit
What im thinking:
ive heard of Homebrew and found an article on how to install node (unrelated but the steps may apply) on OSX
am i on the right track?
would homebrew help me install such dependencies i need to run beautifier?
any and all tips is greatly appreciated.
