- Setup Steps
Jinaga requires Node.
In future steps, you will also need PostgreSQL.
Find specific installation instructions for your platform, or follow these guidelines for common platforms.
Choose your platform
Node and PostgreSQL are available for multiple platforms:
- Linux (eg Ubuntu)
- On Linux via WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) = Linux embedded in Windows
On Linux (Ubuntu)
If you are installing Node on Ubuntu, run these commands from the bash terminal:
curl -fsSL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_16.x | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
If you are installing Node on Windows, have a look at nvm-windows first. This tool allows you to install multiple Node-versions and to easily switch between them.
To start, it's easiest to run PostgreSQL on the same system where Node is running.
Install your editor
Choose and install your favorite editor. We love VS Code, which is free and runs on all the above mentioned platforms
