How to Install enduro.js on Ubuntu Linux

enduro.js is a minimalistic, lean & mean node.js CMS with robust admin and user interfaces. It is built for speed and is excellent for anyone who wants to develop great websites.

enduro.js is easily extended with one dashboard for analytics, user authentication, and workflow management. There’s no database to configure; everything is created as JSON.

Using enduro.js to edit your content on the web should be easy and fun. No need to learn templating and HTML. It hides most of that stuff and focuses on what matters most.

Install Ruby

To install Ruby on Ubuntu, you’ll need to install some dependencies. To make that happen, install Node.js and Yarn repositories. This will make installing the dependencies easier.

First, install these curl and git packages.

sudo apt update
sudo apt install curl git

Then run the commands below to add Node.js and Yarn repositories and keys to your system. Then install some core packages to get your environment going.

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
curl -sS | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yarn.list

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nodejs yarn zlib1g-dev build-essential libpq-dev libssl-dev libreadline-dev libyaml-dev libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev software-properties-common libffi-dev

When you’re done, Continue below:

After adding the repositories and installing the necessary packages above, install Ruby with your local profile settings using rbenv. You’ll then use rbenv to install ruby-build.

cd ~/
git clone ~/.rbenv
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc
exec $SHELL

git clone ~/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
exec $SHELL

After setting up your local profile, run the commands below to install Ruby version 2.5.3. If a newer version is available, replace the version number with that. Then, visit this site to find out about Ruby’s latest versions.

rbenv install 2.5.3
rbenv global 2.5.3
