node installers may install
npm as well.
git in Windows, use Git for Windows and select "Run Git from Windows Command Prompt" and "Checkout Windows-style, commit Unix-style" installation options.
For UNIX-based OS (Linux distibutions, FreeBSD, ...) do
npm config set prefix=~/npm export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/npm/bin"
