Node For Mac

admin 12/13/2021

Just like any programming language, platform, or library, getting up and running with Node.js takes some initial setup before you can start hacking away. With Node.js, the only initial setup required is, quite simply, getting the binary installed.

In this quick tutorial, we'll take a quick look at how to get Node.js on macOS. Once we've completed the entirety of the tutorial, you'll be ready to take the next step with Node.js.

This guide covers installing Node.js on the following versions of OS X and macOS: OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), and macOS 10.11. These are the versions that are consistently tested and supported by the Node.js build process at the time of writing.

How to Install Node.js on Mac By Susan May Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code outside of a browser.

  • The only Node.js first Desktop Automation Library. The first of its kind. Automate Anything. Control the mouse, keyboard, and read the screen. Prebuilt binaries allow you to install without compiling! Licened under MIT and hosted on GitHub. Mac, Windows, and Linux supported!
  • Pi Node - one step closer to user centric decentralization. Access Pi App from desktop and run Pi Node to start contributing to the security of the network. Latest version: 0.3.6.
  • In this section you will create three simple Node.js apps. One of them will just connect to the database, the second will perform basic Insert, Update, Delete, and Select, and the third one will make use of Sequelize, one of the most popular Node.js Object-relational mappers, to execute the same operations.

Step 0: The Quick Guide (TL;DR) to Get Node.js Installed on macOS

Here's the abbreviated guide, highlighting the major steps:

  1. Go to the Node.js Downloads page
  2. Download Node.js for macOS by clicking the 'Macintosh Installer' option
  3. Run the downloaded Node.js .pkg Installer
  4. Run the installer, including accepting the license, selecting the destination, and authenticating for the install.
  5. You're finished! To ensure Node.js has been installed, run node -v in your terminal - you should get something like v6.9.4

Step 1: Download the Node.js .pkg Installer

As our first step, we need to actually get the official installer for Node.js on macOS. To do so, we can head over to the Node.js Downloads page to download the installer.

You can get the macOS installer by clicking the Macintosh Installer option - this will download the .pkg installer for Node.js. Make sure you save it somewhere that you'll be able to access it!

Step 2: Run the Node.js Installer

Now that you've got the installer downloaded, you'll need to run it. The installer is a pretty typical interface - it won't take long to get through it (under a minute), even though there are a few parts to it. You can get through it by following the guide below:

  • Introduction
    • Select Continue
  • License
    • Select Continue
    • Select Agree
  • Installation Type
    • Select Install
    • Authenticate with your Mac to allow the Installation
    • Select Install Software
  • Summary
    • Select Close

To verify that Node.js was installed correctly on your Mac, you can run the following command in your terminal:

If Node.js was properly installed, you'll see something close to (but probably not exactly) this:

As one last step for good measure, we'll update your version of npm.

Node.js always ships with a specific version of npm - Node.js doesn't (and shouldn't!) automatically update npm. The npm releases aren't synced with Node.js releases. Because of this, there's almost always a newer version of npm than the one that is installed by default with a given version of Node.

To easily update your version of npm, you can run the following command:

Step 6: Start building with Node.js!

Now you've got Node.js on your Mac. It's time to start exploring!
