This article offers quick instructions on how to install NodeJS on a CentOS Docker image. The detailed instructions of installing NodeJS on Linux can be found on this page. Please feel free to comment/suggest if I failed to mention one or more important points

Following is the set of instructions:

  • Install Docker on your machine.
  • Pull the CentOS Docker image.
  • Create a container using the CentOS docker image. Use the following command:
    docker run -ti -dP --name centos -v /c/Users:/mnt/Users centos:latest /bin/bash
  • Start the Docker container and attach the image. Use the following command:
    # Starts the docker container
    docker start centos
    # Attach
    docker attach centos
  • Use the following command to install NodeJS:
    # Run as root on RHEL, CentOS, CloudLinux or Fedora:
    curl -sL https://rpm.nodesource.com/setup | bash -
    # Install as Root
    yum install -y nodejs

And that is it. Once the installation is done, type “npm” and you should find “npm” usage command instructions.
