Mac: How to Solve global module install error

When NPM or cnpm is used to install the global module, an error message will be prompted:

[email protected] ~ % npm install --global nodemon
npm WARN checkPermissions Missing write access to /usr/local/lib/node_modules
npm ERR! code EACCES
npm ERR! syscall access
npm ERR! path /usr/local/lib/node_modules
npm ERR! errno -13
npm ERR! Error: EACCES: permission denied, access '/usr/local/lib/node_modules'
npm ERR! [Error: EACCES: permission denied, access '/usr/local/lib/node_modules'] {
npm ERR! errno: -13,
npm ERR! code: 'EACCES',
npm ERR! syscall: 'access',
npm ERR! path: '/usr/local/lib/node_modules'
npm ERR! }
npm ERR!
npm ERR! The operation was rejected by your operating system.
npm ERR! It is likely you do not have the permissions to access this file as the current user
npm ERR!
npm ERR! If you believe this might be a permissions issue, please double-check the
npm ERR! permissions of the file and its containing directories, or try running
npm ERR! the command again as root/Administrator.

Solution: modify user permissions

sudo chown -R $(whoami) $(npm config get prefix)/{lib/node_modules,bin,share}

Just use NPM again to install the global module
