Mimosa is a NPM module and so it must be used with node.js or io.js. Mimosa is tested against node v0.10, v0.12 and the latest io.js, so you will need to download and install one of those.
Use npm to install Mimosa.
$ npm install -g mimosa
The -g flag installs Mimosa globally so it can be run from the command line anywhere. You may need to use sudo to install this depending on your system’s setup.
