In youtube pls Search node.js in toradex i came across a video. I’m curious to now know how to implement Node.js
Node.js may be installed on our Linux image via the package manager (opkg). I recommend first updating the module to our latest Linux image.
With the module booted into Linux, use the command line to:
Update the opkg package listing:
opkg install nodejs
(Optionally) install NPM (Node.js Package Manager):
opkg install nodejs-npm
Additionally, you may need to install other dependencies such as python and various python modules depending on the needs of your application.
@Ashvin I converted your answer to a comment. As for cylon.js - it is not explicitly available from our package repositories, but it should be installable using NPM (the Node.js package manager). Although I haven’t tested it myself, try:
npm install cylon
What are some various python modules? Can i use twisted and flask?
@koustubhavachat I specifically meant that some python modules may be indirectly required for a Node.js appilcation - I wouldn’t expect twisted or flask to be needed by a Node.js application; they’re more likely to be considered alternatives to Node.js.
However, twisted and flask are available from our repositories and can be installed using the package manager (opkg). Simply enter:
opkg install python-twisted
opkg install python-flask
Thank you so much Brandon shibley !
