A few weeks ago I thought I’d try to install Node.js on my Raspberry Pi Zero W to use it as a simple API server that I could take with me on the road. I have installed Node.js so many times before, including on a standard Raspberry Pi, that I figured it would be just as easy to do on the Pi Zero.

If you want to know how this shell script works and would like to get the most out of it, continue reading the article.Read More
