Adding Node.js into Your Raspberry Pi

Node.js is a software platform that is used to build scalable network (especially server-side) applications. Node.js utilizes JavaScript as its scripting language, and achieves high throughput via non-blocking I/O and a single-threaded event loop. 
It contains a built-in HTTP server library, making it possible to run a web server without the use of external software, such as Apache/Lighttpd/nginx, and allowing more control of how the web server works.

Here's an easy way to install/upgrade Node.js on your Raspberry Pi is to use n.
npm install -g n
and use:
n 0.10.17
