Today I had a strange issue when setting up Hubot with Hipchat according to the installation instructions from hubot-hipchat. The build with
yo hubot --adapter hipchat
fails because it downloads the most recent hubot-hipchat NPM package 2.12.0 and then tries to extract 2.7.5 which of course fails. The simple workaround is
  • To patch the package.json of the partial installation and add and explicit hubot-hipchat require for 2.12.0.
  • Rerun the "yo" command and say no when being asked to overwrite package.json
