Nodejs is quite in the news now a days and for good. Let’s not go to details here, straight to install process and get it working. The 1st thing is to fire a terminal and become root by su - . Let’s add a repository for the latest Nodejs packages, default openSUSE repos have Nodejs but old version (.8.12):

zypper ar -f Nodejs

After that refresh the repos:

zypper ref

And now installation time:

zypper install nodejs nodejs-devel

Latest Nodejs has npm packaged with it, so we should be good by installing Nodejs package.

And that should be it for now, keep checking i will write about how to use it and install some plugins, framework to work with.
