Getting Started

The Space Kitty framework requires Node v5.4.0+ since it uses ECMAScript 6 features.


You will need Meteor installed.

You will need to install NodeJS. Use the appropriate installer for your system.

If you already have NodeJS installed, type node -v to see which version you have installed. If  you have an older version, you can install the latest version of NodeJS using n. Just run:

npm cache clean -f
npm install -g n
sudo n stable

Using NVM? Make sure to install the latest version of Node:

nvm install node
nvm ls

Once you have the latest version of NodeJS, you can install Space Kitty:

npm install -g space-kitty

Make sure Space Kitty has installed correctly by typing kitty in the command line.

You should see output similar to the following:

$ kitty
