Googling for “
install nodejs raspi” I get millions of blog post telling me
how to best install NodeJS on a RaspberryPi. Well and this is yet another.
The blog posts often explain how to get the newest version and results range
from proposing version 6.x.x up to version 12.x.x as newest -
some using a browser, some using the command line interface.
I think: Its all to complicated. Raspian already comes with a NodeJS version
available via package manager. So, my humble advise to future me and to all
those tinkerers big and small: Go tinker some more and use whichever NodeJS
version is available via
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install nodejs -y
