How to use node red in Android 8 smartphone

#1

Hey, I am a beginner in Node-Red and I have created the Temperature Monitoring Application using ESP8266 and SHT31 I2C sensor module connected via MQTT server to Node red dashboard in Windows Operating System.

But Now I want to use this on my smartphone whenever I am trying to make it work with the Termux using tutorial

but at while installing the node red, I ended up with the error

npm i -g --unsafe-perm node-red
npm ERR! Cannot read property 'length' of undefined

npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:
npm ERR!     /data/data/com.termux/files/home/.npm/_logs/2019-01-23T06_01_42_814Z-debug.log

I have also checked out the earlier post about this problem but it din't worked out.
Can anyone suggest how can I change the settings manually in termux by switching to the directory they have mentioned in the post?

Can I first check that you really want to run node-red on the phone and not just be able to view, on the phone, the dashboard of the node-red from the node-red running on windows.

Ah yes, I remember now, the Android 8 problem. Sorry I don't know the answer to that, I am using an older Android.
