How to install Node.js via binary archive on Linux?

  1. Unzip the binary archive to any directory you wanna install Node, I use /usr/local/lib/nodejs
 VERSION=v10.15.0
 DISTRO=linux-x64
 sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/nodejs
 sudo tar -xJvf node-$VERSION-$DISTRO.tar.xz -C /usr/local/lib/nodejs 
  1. Set the environment variable ~/.profile, add below to the end
# Nodejs
VERSION=v10.15.0
DISTRO=linux-x64
export PATH=/usr/local/lib/nodejs/node-$VERSION-$DISTRO/bin:$PATH
  1. Refresh profile
. ~/.profile
  1. Test installation using

$ node -v

$ npm version

$ npx -v

the normal output is:

➜  node -v
v10.15.1
➜  npm version
{ npm: '6.4.1',
 ares: '1.15.0',
 cldr: '33.1',
 http_parser: '2.8.0',
 icu: '62.1',
 modules: '64',
 napi: '3',
 nghttp2: '1.34.0',
