The most recent LTS version of Node.js and utilities are available. Node applications use Phusion Passenger as an app server. You can run an application by placing the following in an .htaccess file in your ~/www-root/ directory:

PassengerAppType node
PassengerAppRoot /users/m/y/mynetid/www-root/myapp

PassengerAppRoot should be the full path to the directory where your application's app.js is located.

npm packages

You can install packages for your application with npm. If you need to install something "globally" rather than inside your application's directory, you can change npm's default directory to another directory.
