Did some troubleshooting with Willem, ended up being a problem with the Node.js version (Need at least version 6). PR added to the repository.
I just tried it on mac and it worked. It might be that you need to run the powershell or cmd as an administrator as it required me to run the install with sudo.
Fixed by updating nodeJS to the most recent version, removing the node_modules folder and then rerunning 'npm install'.
Because I can't edit my question for some reason. Hereby the error again:
50 error Windows_NT 10.0.15063 51 error argv "C:\\Program Files\\nodejs\\node.exe" "C:\\Program Files\\nodejs\\node_modules\\npm\\bin\\npm-cli.js" "install" 52 error node v4.4.7 53 error npm v2.15.8 54 error code ELIFECYCLE 55 error firstname.lastname@example.org install: `node init && webpack` 55 error Exit status 2 56 error Failed at the email@example.com install script 'node init && webpack'. 56 error This is most likely a problem with the mendix-hybrid-app-template package, 56 error not with npm itself. 56 error Tell the author that this fails on your system: 56 error node init && webpack 56 error You can get information on how to open an issue for this project with: 56 error npm bugs mendix-hybrid-app-template 56 error Or if that isn't available, you can get their info via: 56 error 56 error npm owner ls mendix-hybrid-app-template 56 error There is likely additional logging output above. 57 verbose exit [ 1, true ]
The node.js on Mac or Linux is easily installed.
I do not try to use PowerShell.
Here is for Windows 10:
node-v6.10.0-x64.msi .NET Framework 4.5.1 only for Windows 7 visualcppbuildtools_full.exe python-2.7.13.msi npm config set python python2.7 npm config set msys_version 2015
Bash on Ubuntu on Windows
