Windows-Build-Tools for Atom

On Windows? Want to install Atom packages depending on native Node modules?

Install the build tools from an elevated PowerShell (run as Administrator) by running: powershell apm install windows-build-tools --verbose apm config set msvs_version 2015 apm config set python $env:USERPROFILE\.windows-build-tools\python27\python.exe

It will install Windows Build Tools by Felix Rieseberg without needing a separate Node.js installation:

After installation, npm will automatically execute this module, which downloads and installs Visual C++ Build Tools 2015, provided free of charge by Microsoft. These tools are required to compile popular native modules. It will also install Python 2.7, configuring your machine and npm appropriately.

:bulb: [Windows Vista / 7 only] requires .NET Framework 4.5.1 (Currently not installed automatically by this package)

Both installations are conflict-free, meaning that they do not mess with existing installations of Visual Studio, C++ Build Tools, or Python. If you see anything that indiciates otherwise, please file a bug.

To verify that everything worked run: powershell apm install --check
