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.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
