Everything you should know on NodeJS

Build Node.JS on ARMv5 DockStar, ARMv6 RaspberryPI

This week Tom Gallacher has made awesome post on how to install Node.js on Raspberry Pi, and in the same way on my French blog I’ve done how to make build NodeJS on ARMv5 using a DockStar.

By default, Node.js can be build without any chances on ARMv7 platforms.

Updates to make Node.js on ARM platforms

Download the source package on node.js website. Untar the archive. Then, we need to update the file deps/v8/SConstruct as follow, by adding your targetted platform ARMv5 or ARMv6 at line 82:


Next, commented from line 157 to 162:


Then, you could start the make process to build both node.js and npm from sources:

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
sudo make install

Wait… Wait…Wait… End then:
