There are no specific configurations of the Raspberry Pi required in order to get it to run Nodejs. However if remote access is required then the openssh server should be installed and configured.
Install and configure the Open SSH server : In order to remotely connect to the Raspberry Pi the Open-SSH server needs to be installed and configured. (It should already be installed, however running the steps below will ensure that the latest version is in use and that the encryption keys are generated.)
If the Raspberry Pi is running in ‘headerlesss’ mode ie. without a monitor, keyboard or mouse, then this will be required to connect to the Raspberry Pi over the LAN.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
