This depends on your server setup, instructions for different servers can be found on https://nodejs.org/en/download/package-manager

For the sites I work on this works:

curl --silent --location https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup_4.x | bash - 

That is not the latest version, for the latest check the link above.

Then navigate to the directory of your packages.json and run

npm install

From there you should be able to follow the instructions here (dev docs).


Install nodejs, npm, and grunt-cli¶

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js 
$ sudo apt-get update 
$ sudo apt-get install nodejs 
$ sudo npm install -g grunt-cli `enter code here`
