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
curl http://nodejs.org/dist/node-latest.tar.gz | tar xz –strip-components=1
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
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.
