Has anyone worked with 'nativefier'. :confused: I seem to be unable to install it even though the instructions 'look' simple enough. It looks very useful to me, for some of the things I'm working on, like the Children's MX18 Desktop.

But it won't be that helpful to me if I can't install it... :rolleyes:

Here's a link to the materials.

Nativefier requires Node.js >= 6 and MX-18 has 4.8.2
Fortunately, debian-backports has 8.11.1
Using the MX Package Installer, Install npm from backports and it will pull in all the other dependencies.
Then the command

Code: Select all

sudo npm install nativefier -g
will install nativefier in the /usr/local tree.

Code: Select all

sudo npm uninstall nativefier -g
will remove it. I'm not fond of packages that don't go through the apt/dpkg system, but node.js is good about letting you easily uninstall if you change your mind.
