Raspberry Pi: Install Node.js and npm
It’s become easy to install Node.js on Raspberry Pi with Raspbian.
First of all, download the arm version of the latest Node.js here.
Change below to the version you downloaded.
#!/bin/bash #Make a new dir where you'll put the binary sudo mkdir /opt/node #Get it wget http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.10.4/node-v0.10.4-linux-arm-pi.tar.gz #unpack tar xvzf node-v0.10.4-linux-arm-pi.tar.gz #Copy to the dir you made as the first step sudo cp -r node-v0.10.2-linux-arm-pi/* /opt/node #Add node to your path so you can call it with just "node" cd ~ nano .bash_profile #Add these lines to the file you opened PATH=$PATH:/opt/node/bin export PATH #Save and exit #Test node -v npm -v
Thanks to johnmclear in the comments who pointed out a huge error in my code. I changed the instructions above so they are correct.
