-===== One-Time Setup ===== 
-As the title indicates, you only need to complete the steps in this section once on your computer. You will need to be connected to the Internet. 
-  - Download the LTS version of Node from [[https://​|the official web site]] and install it by opening the file you download. LTS stands for "​long-term support"​ -- it lags behind the most current version, but is better-tested. 
-  - Open a terminal window. 
-    - On Windows, make sure to do this by following this path of options from the Start menu: Start -> All Programs -> Node.js -> Node.js command prompt. Doing so will make sure that Node is properly available to you. 
-    - On OS X, open the Terminal application that's in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder. 
-    - On Linux, how you open a terminal window depends on what distribution you're using. On Ubuntu, look under Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal. ​ 
-  - Type ''​npm install -g grunt-cli''​ and press the Enter key. This command asks npm -- short for the Node Package Manager -- to install Grunt for you. The ''​-g''​ part ensures that you'll be able to use Grunt in any project you create in the future. The G is short for "​global."​ 
-npm will print out text as it installs Grunt, and it's normal for it to pause for a moment after you press Enter before printing any response. What it's doing is consulting a global repository to find the files you need -- a lot more convenient than you having to hunt around on the Web and run a separate installer. When you see the prompt again after it completes, you're done.
