Installing NPM/NodeJS on CentOS is a nightmare

Have been trying for a few hours to install node on CentOS 7.7 to no avail. Cmon guys yum install node/nodejs/npm should just work.

What’s a boy to do?


Workaround for now:

curl -Lk https://git.io/n-install | bash
n 12.13.0

To make node and npm globally available (to any user):

sudo ln -s ~/n/n/versions/node/12.13.0/bin/node /usr/bin/node
sudo ln -s ~/n/bin/npm /usr/bin/npm

Voila:

node -v
v12.13.0
