OpenWrt Node.js Packages (nodejs)

Description

OpenWrt/LEDE Node.js Packages : for Head (Development branch)

Note: support arches are aarch64, arm, x86_64

MIPS without hardware FPU no longer be supported

License

See LICENSE file.

Usage

Add the following line to feeds.conf or feeds.conf.default.

src-git node https://github.com/nxhack/openwrt-node-packages.git

Run

./scripts/feeds update node
rm ./package/feeds/packages/node
rm ./package/feeds/packages/node-*
./scripts/feeds install -a -p node
make defconfig

Request to add a package is welcome

If you want a new module (native module) that requires a precompiled binary, please open the issue.

Note

If you want to use with Chaos Calmer(15.05), see for-15.05 branch (End of life)

If you want to use with LEDE (17.01), see lede-17.01 branch (End of life)

If you want to use with 18.06, see openwrt-18.06 branch (End of life)

If you want to use with 19.07, see openwrt-19.07 branch (MIPS FPU EMULATOR support)

If you want to use with 21.02, see openwrt-21.02 branch (MIPS is no longer supported)

OpenSSL 1.0.x becomes EoL, OpenWrt-18.06 will not be supported. Python2 becomes EoL, node v8.x will not be supported.

On the host side, the following preparations are required.

  • Unix prerequisites
  • To build a 32-bit target, gcc-multilib, g++-multilib are required.
  • The libatomic package is required. (Install the 32-bit library at the same time, if necessary).

Illegal instruction issue

V8 JIT code generates FP instruction. Node.js does not work without hardware FPU.

If you are running nodejs on the Atheros AR71xx/AR933x, MediaTek MT76x8, it will not work because there is no hardware FPU. ARM cores without vfp or neon (such as bcm53xx) will not work either.

Enable Inspector

Processor ICU Inspector
32bit Disable NO
32bit small-icu YES
64bit Disable NO
64bit small-icu YES
64bit system-icu YES

Debugging Guide Nice to use Chrome DevTools.

Note: ICU currently supports only LITTLE ENDIAN.

Note about mDNS and homebridge

If you use node-homebridge(node-hap-nodejs), please install mDNS package (umdns / avahi-dbus-daemon / mdnsresponder).

(1) Some OpenWrt / Lede images have built in dnscrypt-proxy package, which by default listening on 5353 port.

In that case, installed avahi-daemon will not start on ipv4 interface, only on ipv6 because ipv4 port is taken.

This will lead to strange issue: your homebrdge accessory will be visible in 'Home' app, but can't finish pairing.

To fix this, you have to stop and disable dnscrypt-proxy

Also, you have to enable: dbus and avahi-daemon services to start automatically, i.e for Lede:

/etc/init.d/dbus enable
/etc/init.d/avahi-daemon enable

(2) avahi on home network

Please read this document. 'Why avahi and bonjour don't work on your home network'

IGMP-querier will solve your problem.

OpenWrt custom packages available: https://github.com/nxhack/openwrt-custom-packages

Low memory

Specify v8-options.

--max_old_space_size=80

Or use swap.
