Using Foundation for Emails in Windows Subsystem for Linux with NVM
May 24, 2018 2 minute read

Foundation for Emails was a revelation when it first came out. It uses NPM to help you build responsive emails that look mostly the same in various email clients. It inlines and compresses your HTML so you can pop it into Listrak and be done.

I use it at work all the time, but getting it to npm install is getting harder and harder. Zurb hasn't maintained it in a long time, which is a disappointment to many.

I recently spent some time troubleshooting this on a Windows machine with Ubuntu installed via WSL, and I'd like to share how I got it working.
