Prepare the System
This guide is written for Ubuntu 18.04 operating system. If you have a Windows PC, you can enable Windows Subsystem for Linux and install Ubuntu 18.04 from the Microsoft Store. If you have a Macbook or a Linux machine other than Ubuntu 18.04, you can install Vagrant, and create a virtual machine using bento/ubuntu-18.04 template. All steps below should be executed inside Ubuntu 18.04 environment.
To use NDNts, you must have Node.js. As of this writing, NDNts works best with Node.js 14.x, and you should install that version. The easiest way to install Node.js is through Node Version Manager (nvm). To install nvm and then install Node.js, type the following commands in Ubuntu 18.04 terminal:
$ wget -qO- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nvm-sh/nvm/v0.35.3/install.sh | bash $ nvm install 14 Now using node v14.2.0 (npm v6.14.4)
