Installing Node.js on CentOS using Nave

Hold on Cowboy

This blog post is pretty old. Be careful with the information you find in here. It's likely dead, dying, or wildly inaccurate.

So I needed to install Node.js on CentOS, but I was hard pressed to find a yum repo that was up to date. Then I stumbled upon Nave. This is really easy. It’s just a bash script that you run to install node and npm. # Get the shell script wget chmod +x ./ usemain 0.8.8 node -v

# Will print
# v0.8.8

Life could not be easier 

Did this help you out? It took me a few days to piece together all this information together, I hope this saves you some time (who knows, maybe the future me will be thankful I wrote this down). Let me know your thoughts.
