NodeJS and JSHint on Fedora

Yesterday I blogged that it's a hassle to install these on Fedora. Apparently I was suffering from brain fog. It's not so bad once you do enough research and stumble across the right advice online.

First, if you're a bonehead and you've made a mess trying unsuccessfully to install v8/nodejs/npm/jshint eight or ten times already, clean things up:

sudo yum -y remove v8

The repository for picking up nodejs, npm, and v8 is which you can enable on your system as follows:

sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck \

You want to avoid installing the wrong version of the V8 Javascript engine, so edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo and add the line


to the "[updates]" section.

Now you're ready to install everything:

sudo yum install npm
sudo npm install jshint -g
