Installing Node.js on a Mac

Node on Mac.  Why would I do this? While investing new Cordova/Phonegap options within Visual Studio 2015 I was required to install node.js as part of the setup.  The next blog post will continue this tutorial and get a Hybrid/JavaScript application running on the IOS simulator.

So, getting Node running….

  • Open Terminal from Finder application
  • Install Homebrew using
    ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

  • Within Terminal window getting node.js is as easy as typing brew install node
