Nodejs installation and scripting instructions


#1

Are there any instructions for installing Node.js in DF and using nodejs scripting in server side scripting ? The wiki page does not have any info regarding this. I am interested in installing some npm modules and use them to manipulate my inbound and outbound data.


#2

Hi, how you installed DF? and which version you are using?


#3

I installed the Bitnami image on google on a container, v2.0.2


#4

Is there any update on installation documentation or maybe nodejs example scripts? I’ve installed DF with an Openshift cartridge so I didn’t get any prepackaged libraries. It looks like the Nodejs section of the wiki has said “Coming Soon!” for a few months.


#5

Node examples should be done in a few days. Sorry for the delay.


#6

Ah no worries - I know you guys are working hard on it.


#7

There’s now a node example showing how to enable node and use require() to include modules that your script can use. We’ll be adding more examples in the future.
