fixing dlopen “no suitable image found” errors with node, sass and grunt

I ran in to this error today:

$ grunt css
Loading “sass.js” tasks…ERROR
>> Error: dlopen(/path/to/project/node_modules/grunt-sass/node_modules/node-sass/vendor/darwin-x64-node-0.12/binding.node, 1): no suitable image found. Did find:

Aborted due to warnings.

For those curious, this is dyld failing to open a shared library. (See man dlopen.)

I checked and the file exists:

$ file /path/to/project/node_modules/grunt-sass/node_modules/node-sass/vendor/darwin-x64-node-0.12/binding.node
/path/to/project/node_modules/grunt-sass/node_modules/node-sass/vendor/darwin-x64-node-0.12/binding.node: Mach-O 64-bit bundle x86_64

Reinstalling fixed things:

$ rm -rf node_modules/grunt-sass
$ npm install

> [email protected] postinstall /path/to/project/node_modules/grunt-sass/node_modules/node-sass
> node scripts/build.js

`darwin-x64-node-0.12` exists; testing
Binary is fine; exiting
