This command installs stuff globally, which tries to access system's 
directories and that's what's giving you the error (the store is immutable).
What I suggest is to remove the -g so the packages are going to be installed in 
the current folder under node_modules, and you'll be able to run them by their 


You can also add that to the PATH and simplify some things.
That's what I do.

But there might be other better options, like setting where should npm install 
the packages globally? I don't know about that.

Hope that helps
