To clarify, I want to use brew to get node which to my knowledge breaks if put in the wrong directory.
After posting I found this Gist containing a ruby script that allows for installation of brew in usr/local without sudo/admin rights
However this did not seem to accept the path to said directory.
My /usr/local is in Hard Disk (8th Grade) below
YOUR_HOME = 'Hard Disk (8th Grade)'
However in the line when you specify the "absolute path" of the install directory (I did chmod +x install.rb) and I run the script in terminal I get this printout
(couldn't embed both images b/c of new user status, sorry)
Thanks, Diego E
