Install Node Js Osx

/ Comments off

Installing Node.js and NPM is pretty straightforward using Homebrew. Homebrew handles downloading, unpacking and installing Node and NPM on your system. The whole process (after you have XCode and Homebrew installed) should only take you a few minutes. Open the Terminal app and type brew install node. There are many different ways to install Yarn, but a single one is recommended and cross-platform: Install via npm. It is recommended to install Yarn through the npm package manager, which comes bundled with Node.js when you install it on your system. Once you have npm installed you can run the following both to install and upgrade Yarn.

Before you start using Yarn, you'll first need to install it on your system. There are many different ways to install Yarn, but a single one is recommended and cross-platform:

To test out your Node and npm install, try installing Grunt (you might be asked to run with sudo): npm install -g grunt-cli If that worked then congratulations — you’ve installed Node.js, npm, and Grunt.

Install via npm

Before extracting Yarn, it is recommended that you verify the tarball using GPG:

Path Setup

If Yarn is not found in your PATH, follow these steps to add it and allow it to be run from anywhere.

Note: your profile may be in your .profile, .bash_profile, .bashrc, .zshrc, etc.

  1. Add this to your profile: export PATH='$PATH:/opt/yarn-[version]/bin' (the path may vary depending on where you extracted Yarn to)
  2. In the terminal, log in and log out for the changes to take effect

To have access to Yarn’s executables globally, you will need to set up the PATH environment variable in your terminal. To do this, add export PATH='$PATH:`yarn global bin`' to your profile, or if you use Fish shell, simply run the command set -U fish_user_paths (yarn global bin) $fish_user_paths

Debian / Ubuntu

On Debian or Ubuntu Linux, you can install Yarn via our Debian packagerepository. You will first need to configure the repository:

On Ubuntu 16.04 or below and Debian Stable, you will also need to configure the NodeSource repository to get a new enough version of Node.js.

Then you can simply:

Note: Ubuntu 17.04 comes with cmdtest installed by default. If you’re getting errors from installing yarn, you may want to run sudo apt remove cmdtest first. Refer to this for more information.

If using nvm you can avoid the node installation by doing:

Note: Due to the use of nodejs instead of node name in some distros, yarn might complain about node not being installed. A workaround for this is to add an alias in your .bashrc file, like so: alias node=nodejs. This will point yarn to whatever version of node you decide to use.

Install via Chocolatey

Chocolatey is a package manager for Windows.You can install Chocolatey by followingthese instructions.

Once you have Chocolatey installed, you may install yarn by running thefollowing code in your console:

This will also ensure that you have Node.js installed.

Install via Scoop

Once you have Scoop installed, you may install yarn by running thefollowing code in your console:

If Node.js is not installed, scoop will give you a suggestion to install it.Example:

Notice

Please whitelist your project folder and the Yarn cache directory (%LocalAppData%Yarn) in your antivirus software, otherwise installing packages will be significantly slower as every single file will be scanned as it’s written to disk.

Alternatives

If you are using another OS or one of the other options specific to your OSwill not work for you, there are a couple of alternatives. You will need toinstall Node.js if you don’t already have it installed.

On common Linux distributions such as Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS, it isrecommended to install Yarn via our packages instead.

Assuming you’ve already installed Node.js, create a directory to hold your application, and make that your working directory.

Use the npm init command to create a package.json file for your application.For more information on how package.json works, see Specifics of npm’s package.json handling.

This command prompts you for a number of things, such as the name and version of your application.For now, you can simply hit RETURN to accept the defaults for most of them, with the following exception:

Enter app.js, or whatever you want the name of the main file to be. If you want it to be index.js, hit RETURN to accept the suggested default file name.

Now install Express in the myapp directory and save it in the dependencies list. For example:

To install Express temporarily and not add it to the dependencies list:

By default with version npm 5.0+ npm install adds the module to the dependencies list in the package.json file; with earlier versions of npm, you must specify the --save option explicitly. Then, afterwards, running npm install in the app directory will automatically install modules in the dependencies list.
