Step 1: Update Your System
Before we begin, it’s important to update your system to the latest version. To do this, open the terminal and run the following commands:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
This will update your system to the latest version.
Step 2: Install Node.js
Once your system is up-to-date, you can install Node.js using the following command:
sudo apt-get install nodejs
This command will install Node.js and its package manager, npm, on your Kali Linux machine.
Step 3: Verify Node.js Installation
To verify that Node.js has been installed successfully, open the terminal and run the following commands:
node -v npm -v
These commands will display the version of Node.js and npm installed on your system.
Step 4: Install Additional Packages (Optional)
If you plan on using Node.js to build web applications or APIs, you may need to install additional packages. You can do this using npm, the Node.js package manager.
For example, to install the popular Express framework, you can run the following command:
npm install express
This command will install the Express framework and its dependencies on your system.
Step 5: Update Node.js and npm (Optional)
From time to time, updates to Node.js and npm may be released. To update Node.js and npm, open the terminal and run the following commands:
sudo npm cache clean -f sudo npm install -g n sudo n stable sudo npm install -g npm
These commands will update Node.js and npm to the latest versions.
