While Meteor comes with its own Node and NPM applications built in, you need to install maka-cli globally, and for that you need a system installed NodeJS module. So head on over to NodeJS and install the stable version. Alternatively, try one of these Node Version Managers.

You may install maka-cli using npm: NPM
npm i -g @maka/maka-cli@latest
npm i -g meteor
After you've installed maka-cli, lets just kick the tires and make a quick application. Find a comfortable place on your development machine to issue the create command and make a new Meteor application.
maka create KickTiresApp
Lets test that new KickTiresApp by running it. Drop into the KickTiresApp directory and run maka run.
If all goes well, you should see in your command line or terminal the following output.
