Easy Install node.js

Automated node.js installers for OS X and Ubuntu

node.js only (no dev tools)

How to Setup a VPS for node.js Development - (3:06 installing node.js)

Choosing a specific version

echo "Current node.js version is $(curl -fsSL https://nodejs.org/dist/index.tab | head -2 | tail -1 | cut -f 1)"
# To install a specific version rather than defaulting to latest
# latest version at time of writing are v4.4.1 and v5.9.1
echo "v7.9.0" > /tmp/NODEJS_VER


Apple OS X

First you need to Install XCode Command Line Tools

xcode-select --install

Then you need to Accept the XCode License by running any command installed by Xcode with sudo. We'll use git.

sudo git --version

You can scroll to the bottom by hitting shift+G (capital G).

Type agree and hit enter to accept the license.

Now you can install node.js

curl -fsSL bit.ly/install-dev-node -o /tmp/node-dev.sh; bash /tmp/node-dev.sh

TODO: Make it easier to accepting the license (automatic?)

Ubuntu Linux

wget -nv bit.ly/install-dev-node -O /tmp/node-dev.sh; bash /tmp/node-dev.sh

Other things you should know

This is what gets installed:

  • rsync
  • curl
  • wget
  • git
  • xcode / brew / build-essential / pkg-config / gcc
  • node (including npm)
  • jshint

NOTE: If you're running a node.js server on an edge server, I'd highly recommend that you also install fail2ban to secure ssh - especially if you haven't switched your server to use key-only authentication.
