Parcel-bundler won't install

I am at the Course #42 of Part 3 of HTML/CSS and I followed the same method as the video (npm i -D parcel-bundler also tried typing the same version that Mosh was using for the tutorial) to install the parcel bundler but it gives me bunch of error message and I don’t see a node_modules folder in the Explorer either.

The error message I received:

Because of this I am stuck in this course for now. Any help would be highly appreciative. Thank you in advance.

The main error seems to be this line:

clang: error: no such file or directory: ‘Photograpahy/node_modules/node-addon-api’

I don’t know if this will help or is the right way to solve this, but you could try running this command before running the parcel install command:

npm i node-addon-api

Tried following your process but it shows the same error message. This time installing the, “npm i node-addon-api” did show a, “node_modules” folder in the Expolorer but there is only, “node-addon-api”, library in it, no any parcel-bundler library. Thanks for trying to help though.

So I found a solution and wanted to share with the new Web Developers like me. If you’re having trouble installing, “parcel-bundler”, then try running the command without the, “-bundler”, eg. (npm i -D parcel). This worked for me and I think the reason why the parcel.bundler wasn’t working is from what i read in the error message is that I assume they discontinued parcel-bundler and their new version(v2) is just, “parcel” not “parcel-bundler”. Thats my assumption for parcel-bundler not working and the mention solution worked for me. Cheers if that helps anyone facing the same issue.
