Recently I bought a new Raspberry Pi 3 and wanted to run a few Node.js applications on it. Unfortunately the Node.js version that is available on Raspbian is quite old.

Don’t worry, it’s easy to install. Follow the instructions below and you’re all set.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ curl -sL | sudo bash -
$ apt-get install nodejs

Verify the installation with node -v. It should output something like v7.0.0
