Installing NodeJS on Linux (LTS)

I am doing this quick guide because I think node isn't very easy to install. There are plenty of different installation means and it can get very quickly confusing because some are distro-specific, some are outdated, etc.

My Alacritty Setup

Why I use Alacritty

Installing Etherpad

In this post I'm gonna explain how to install and configure Etherpad on your server (for production).

We're going to: install NodeJS, install Etherpad, setup subdomain, setup HTTPS, setup nginx, create a service file for Etherpad, create a database for Etherpad, change the default Etherpad theme and install new plugins. All of this in less than half an hour...

How to get a free domain name

Domain names are required for a lot of actions on your server, like the SSL certificate generation for example.

But you may want to get one for free to avoid the need of paying anything for your server (in the case when you self-host).
