Installing Quire on macOS

If you receive an error message that says “Error: EACCES: permission denied”, this is related to the ownership and permissions settings for the global node_modules directories that are installed with Quire. To fix this issue, run the following command:

sudo chown -R $(whoami) $(npm config get prefix)/{lib/node_modules,bin,share}

Quire Commands

Running quire build on Windows 10

There is currently an issue with quire build on Windows 10. It is with one of Quire external dependencies and we are awaiting a fix. In the meantime, there is a workaround. In the node_modules/@11ty/eleventy-plugin-vite/EleventyVite.js file in your project, add await fsp.rm(tmp, { recursive: true, force: true }); between lines 51 and 52. And then on line 63 of the same file, change path.sep to /. Save the changes and quire build should work as expected.

Running quire new on macOS

If you’re a Mac user and receive an error message that references “Developer/CommandLineTools” that means you need to install Apple Xcode, a set of developer tools for your Mac. Run the command xcode-select --install. It may take a few minutes to install. Once install is complete, try creating a new project again.
