How to install Node.js on Raspberry Pi

Installing Node.js on Raspberry Pi is very simple for those with basic command line experience.

In the terminal or via SSH:

  1. Add the package source: curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo -E bash -
  2. Install Node using: sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
  3. Confirm package is installed: node -v

Extra steps

You may also wish to install the development tools to build native addons: sudo apt-get install gcc g++ make

And you may wish to install Yarn package manager to replace NPM:

curl -sL https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/pubkey.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb https://dl.yarnpkg.com/debian/ stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install yarn
