Can't install ionic via npm without sudo on MacOS


I need to build app on MacOS in my school, where I can’t use sudo and I have to install everything to my home directory. There were no problems with cordova installation. In Ionic case, npm hangs on : “extract:acorn → gunzTarPe”.


  1. Can I install Ionic without sudo somehow, or even without npm?
  2. If not, can I build app developed in Ionic only with Cordova somehow?
