I did a quick search, and found some instructions here: https://discourse.nodered.org/t/how-to-run-node-red-on-windows-10-wsl-linux-subsystem/
Just checking to see if this info is up to date before proceeding?
I tried running
sudo -d install node-red but got:
sudo: invalid option -- 'd'
usage: sudo -h | -K | -k | -V
usage: sudo -v [-AknS] [-g group] [-h host] [-p prompt] [-u user]

usage: sudo -e [-AknS] [-r role] [-t type] [-C num] [-g group] [-h host] [-p prompt] [-T timeout] [-u user] file ...
Is the alternate-node-red-installer my only option?
I would've asked there, but the topic is closed.
Node-RED is a node.js app so you can install it by doing
npm install node-red --unsafe-perm in a convenient folder. You can also do the usual
npm -g install node-red --unsafe-perm to install it globally if you prefer.
It is unlikely that Dave's Pi install script will work because WSL doesn't include systemd I don't think.
My alternate installer simply installs node-red locally as in the first command I gave. But it sets up the folder and some other conveniences for you as well.
In all cases, you need to have installed node.js first and possibly
npm install -g build-essentials (not sure about that last, been a while since I installed on WSL.
Cool, global install it is then.
npm -g install node-red --unsafe-perm, everything went well, and seems to work as intended.
npm install -g build-essentials is not of any use for WSL installations.
@TotallyInformation is there a typo in option 2 in the link in the first message above ?
Quite possibly - what typo?
@TotallyInformation I believe he is referring to the command
sudo -d install node-red as I'm not sure what that is supposed to be.
Oh right, yes I just ignored that as it was the wrong command of course, I gave the right one.
Would it be worth correcting the original posting at https://discourse.nodered.org/t/how-to-run-node-red-on-windows-10-wsl-linux-subsystem/ (which you wrote I believe, in case you hadn't noticed).
Oh, well why didn't someone tell me it was my text!
