Upgrade Carto Compiler

Today, I tried to upgrade Carto Compiler.

To be acquainted with Cartocss, one can follow this tutorial.


The current version of carto compiler is

$ carto –version
carto 0.9.5 (Carto map stylesheet compiler)

To upgrade it through npm. You should have nodejs, npm installed in order to upgrade carto.

$ sudo npm install -g carto

After upgrading it, I again checked the version. But I got the error.

$ carto –version
/usr/bin/env: ‘node’: No such file or directory

To solve this error I created the symbolic link of node from nodejs.

$ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/

nodejs /usr/bin/node

Problem Solved. It is upgraded.

$ carto –version
carto 0.18.1 (Carto map stylesheet compiler)
