  3. To test the installation, open a command window (make sure you open a new command window to get the updated path settings made by the Node.js installation), and type:
  1. node --version
  1. Install Git. Git is a version control system, which is used by Cordova behind-the-scenes. Download and install from: http://git-scm.com. Default settings are recommended.
  2. Install Cordova. Cordova is installed using the Node Package Manager (npm). Type the following in the command window to install:
    npm install -g cordova
