How to install node.js on Ubuntu 13.04 / 13.10

Node. js is a new technology used to replace some of current server side technologies. node.js is a javascript programing language , that can used to write server side programs. Now a day , we use javascript for client side programming but node.js  allows us to write server side also. I think it can be used to replace PHP, JSP and ASP like scripting language. In this post  we will explain  How to Install Node.js on Ubuntu 13.04 and Ubuntu 13.10. Like all Ubuntu apps , we have two methods , 1. Download and Install node.js from source package , 2. Using Terminal and PPA’s. Here  I like to use the second one , which is simple and easy for all people.


How to Install node.js 

1. Open Terminal

2. Enter these commands

sudo apt-get update 

3. Enter your password ( Password uses to login Ubuntu OS )

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties python g++ make

4. Install Python on your system
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js

5. Update software repository  , because we add a new software package 
                                                       sudo apt-get update 

6. Install node.js

                                                 sudo apt-get install nodejs

Check node.js version 

Enter this command 
node  –version 

Now you can start coding in node.js language , MongoDB is another new technology which can uses with node.js. I will explain How to Install MangoDB on your Ubuntu machine in another post. I will add that link as soon as possible in this article.
