Instructions for installing Node.js editions on Raspberry Pi

When installing the Node.js editions on a Raspberry Pi or other Linux ARM device, the library must be installed from the obfuscated source. To do this you will need the obfuscated source. Please contact and request it.

Once the package is on the Pi, soft links need to be created for libssl and libcrypto. Afterwards the installation can continue as normal.

  • Create a softlink for libssl using: sudo ln -s
  • Create a softlink for libcrypto using: sudo ln -s
  • Install the source package: npm install ipworks-src-16.0.tar.gz
