How to implement Node.js in Colibri iMX6 with Yocto?

Hello everybody,

I recently acquired a Colibri iMX6 with a Colibri Viola Board, and I’m looking to use Node.js on it. How can I get Node running in the Colibri i.MX6(working OS is Yocto)?

thanks in advance

At least with OpenEmbedded, nodejs recipe is available in meta-oe layer by default. Also see existing community posts like the one here if you want to install with opkg on our default demo images.

opkg update
opkg flag hold libc6
opkg install nodejs nodejs-npm

There is also a meta-nodejs layer. Once can add the relevant layer with Yocto/Poky and then build nodejs.
