Install JavaScript in Termux

JavaScript is a popular scripting language that is widely used for web development. If you want to use JavaScript in Termux, you can install the Node.js runtime environment, which includes the JavaScript engine. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to install JavaScript in Termux:

Step 1: Install the Node.js Package

The first step is to install the Node.js package in Termux. To do this, open Termux and run the following command:

pkg install nodejs

This will download and install the Node.js package.

Step 2: Test the Installation

Once Node.js is installed, you can test if it’s working correctly by creating a simple JavaScript file. Open a text editor and create a file called test.js. In this file, add the following code:

console.log("Hello, world!");

Save the file and then run it in Termux by executing the following command:

node test.js

If Node.js is installed correctly, you should see the output “Hello, world!” in your terminal.

Step 3: Install Additional Modules (Optional)

Node.js comes with a package manager called npm that allows you to easily install additional modules. To install a module, you can use the following command:

npm install <module-name>

For example, to install the popular “request” module, run the following command:

npm install request


By following these simple steps, you can easily install JavaScript in Termux by installing the Node.js package. You can then test the installation by running a simple JavaScript file, and optionally install additional modules using npm.
