Node.js on the Raspberry Pi
March 16, 2013
I'm most certainly not the first who tried this, but here is how I did install node.js on my Raspberry Pi.
I installed a fresh image (2013-02-09-wheezy-raspbian.zip), which you can get here.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install build-essential
Then I went over here and executed the commands in this Gist:
echo 'export PATH=$HOME/local/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.bashrc . ~/.bashrc mkdir ~/local mkdir ~/node-latest-install cd ~/node-latest-install curl http://nodejs.org/dist/node-latest.tar.gz | tar xz --strip-components=1 ./configure --prefix=~/local make install # ok, fine, this step probably takes more than 30 seconds... curl https://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh
And after that there is node.js and npm on the Raspberry Pi:
pi@raspberrypi ~/node-latest-install $ npm -v && node -v 1.2.14 v0.10.0
Now install Nginx on your Raspberry Pi and start hosting Node apps. Well, first I need a use case. And then I need to know how to write it.
