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.
