Node.js works on Rapsberry Pi. Currently, it is possible to install Node.js version 0.6 using apt-get. If you want a more recent version, you will need to compile it.

Install Node.js 0.6

Simply call:

apt-get install nodejs

Install latest version of Node.js

Go to and copy the source code download url. In my example:

Create a file called and paste the folloing code:

tar -xzf node-v0.10.2.tar.gz
cd node-v0.10.2
sudo make install

Node that in your case, you may need to change the bold parts according to the version you want

After that, you can check that Node and NPM are properly installed using the following command lines:

node -v

should reply v0.10.2

npm -v

should reply 1.2.25

The compilation will run for 1 or 2 hours on RPi. If you are doing that using ssh connection, you may want to install screen: It will allow you to close the ssh connection without killing the conpilation process. See

Those instructions have been tested with Node.js 0.10.2
