Installing Node.js on a Raspberry Pi 3

Hi, How are we going to eat all this Pi?? Today we're going to look at installing Node.js on a Raspberry Pi 3. Luckily it's pretty straight forward.

Just follow the steps below.

wget https://nodejs.org/dist/v4.3.2/node-v4.3.2-linux-armv6l.tar.gz 
tar -xvf node-v4.3.2-linux-armv6l.tar.gz 
cd node-v4.3.2-linux-armv6l

Copy to /usr/local

sudo cp -R * /usr/local/

That's it! To check Node.js is properly installed and you have the right version, run the command node -v and it should return v4.3.2
