Laravel, elixir and gulp

I've gulpfile.js with content

var gulp = require('gulp');//this is working
gulp.task('default', function() { });//this is working
var elixir = require('laravel-elixir');//this is NOT working

Running "gulp" in cmd I get a message:

    throw err;
Error: Cannot find module 'lodash._baseclone'
    at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:336:15)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:286:25)

command gulp is working, but how to set the elixir to work, that gulp is working on it. What is laravel/elixir proper version for writing to file composer.js require {..,"laravel/elixir":"???????",..}. Is it "laravel/elixir" or "laravel-elixir". I'm unable to find sufficient good instructions.

Installing Node js is installed on your machine. By default, Laravel Homestead includes everything you need; however, if you aren't using Vagrant, then you can easily install Node by visiting their download page. Don't worry, it's quick and easy!

Sometimes npm install fails to install packages due to your machine ram spec or services runing in server , try installing bit by bit the laravel-elixir package dependency in your package.json file then finish by adding the elixir package at the bottom of the file as in below :

  "private": true,
  "devDependencies": {
  "gulp": "^3.8.8"
"dependencies": {
"babelify": "^7.2.0",
"browser-sync": "^2.7.10",
"browserify": "^11.2.0",
"del": "^1.2.0",
"glob": "^5.0.14",
"gulp-autoprefixer": "^2.3.1",
"gulp-babel": "^6.1.0",
"babel-preset-es2015": "^6.1.0",
"babel-preset-react": "^6.1.18",
"gulp-batch": "^1.0.5",
"gulp-coffee": "^2.3.1",
"gulp-concat": "^2.6.0",
"gulp-if": "^1.2.5",
"gulp-less": "^3.0.3"

ADD ALL DEPENDENCIES BIT BY BIT AS IN THIS FILE https://github.com/laravel/elixir/blob/master/package.json ONCE ALL DEPENCIES HAVE INSTALLED ADD

 "laravel-elixir": "^4.0.0" 

AT THE BOTTOM AND RUN npm install , this should install elixir and all dependencies
