I’ve never written in a forum before so this might be misplaced.
I am trying to run Ghost locally so I can develop a custom theme for my site. After having rolled by my version of Node.js to v6.14.3 (but upgrading npm to the current version), I still get the following error message after running
$ npm start per the instruction here.
I’ve pasted the resulting errors below. I should also state that I’m using the most recent v. of Ghost, Terminal on a Mac running High Sierra, and I did previously have a version of Node.js that was unsupported (since uninstalled).
