How to Install Node.js and NPM on Windows for Beginners

Normally, NPM or node js are more often installed on Ubuntu OS. But there is a secret way to be able to install NPM on a Windows OS. And not only Ubuntu, but all OS Linux can install NPM.

JavaScript is quickly becoming the main language for web developers. Front-end web developers use JavaScript to add improved user interfaces, add interactivity, and talk to web back-end services using AJAX. 

Web developers who work on the server side also flock to JavaScript because of the efficiency and speed offered by JavaScript triggered by events, non-blocking.

In fact, concentrating on JavaScript as your preferred language offers the opportunity to master a language while still being able to develop "full-stack" web applications. The key to this server-side JavaScript revolution is Node.js® - the version of the JavaScript V8 Chrome runtime engine - which makes it possible to run JavaScript on the server side.

Node.js is also used to develop desktop applications and to use tools that make website development simpler. numbones.com will give you one example, if you install Node.js® on your desktop machine, you can quickly convert CoffeeScript to JavaScript, SASS to CSS, and reduce the size of your HTML, JavaScript and graphics files. Using NPM - a tool that makes installation and management of the Node module - very easy to add many useful tools to your web development device.


Nodes are not programs that you launch like Word or Photoshop: You won't find them pinned to the taskbar or in your Application list. To use Node, you have to type command line instructions, so you should be comfortable with (or at least know how to get started) command line tools such as Windows Command Prompt, PowerShell, Cygwin, or Git shell (which is installed together with Github for Windows).
