I was wondering how node-red/node.js is installed in DietPi and how best to update it. Is it just an apt-get install?
Raspbian has a script to update node.js/node-red but this is pretty specific to that Distro/SBC.
I’ve got a variety of platforms from an older v159 to a more recent V6, so this is not just a how to do it now, but also future releases.
Thanks for the pointer.
For anyone else who might want to update/upgrade node-red, best way is to update node.js first, then npm and finally node-red.
: Update node.js first
chmod +x node-install.sh
:then update npm
npm i -g npm
npm install -g node-red --unsafe-perm
then restart node-red
dietpi-services restart node-red
How does one enable node-red on boot with v6.7?
Over a year since I posted this. Is this still the correct way to update node-red on DietPi?
Just updated to V6.24.1 and want to update node-red.
Jep this is still fully correct, however the Node.js/npm update could be skipped.
If you update Node.js, take care the following issue with the installer on ARMv6: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/2755
