Has it installed or bcrypt or not.
I ran the following line in the console.
npm install bcrypt
This is the result I got.
> firstname.lastname@example.org install /Users/briankaty1/node_modules/bcrypt > node-pre-gyp install --fallback-to-build [bcrypt] Success: "/Users/briankaty1/node_modules/bcrypt/lib/binding/bcrypt_lib.node" is installed via remote npm WARN saveError ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/Users/briankaty1/package.json' npm notice created a lockfile as package-lock.json. You should commit this file. npm WARN enoent ENOENT: no such file or directory, open '/Users/briankaty1/package.json' npm WARN briankaty1 No description npm WARN briankaty1 No repository field. npm WARN briankaty1 No README data npm WARN briankaty1 No license field. + email@example.com added 111 packages in 8.783s
So is it installed? When I look in the folder there is nothing there!

Hi Brian. From what I can see, the answer is 'yes you have installed it'. If you look inside the newly created node_modules folder (/Users/briankaty1/node_modules/) you will see the 110* modules, one of which is 'bcrypt'. (*Your result does report 111, as does mine, but there is probably a reason Windows reports 110 and not 111 entries inside the node_modules folder).
Another simple test is to type npm list bcrypt. After a short delay, it will report `-- firstname.lastname@example.org which confirms to you that this module is installed locally on your computer.
Don't worry too much about those NPM warning messages. It is flagging the fact you currently have no package.json file and therefore it cannot read some of its contents.
