Determine which download you need:
$ uname -m
Now head to: https://nodejs.org/en/download/
Right click on the correct download to "Copy link address" you need. For this example I'll use the linux x64 download.
$ wget https://nodejs.org/dist/v10.16.3/node-v10.16.3-linux-x64.tar.xz
Unpack and install
$ tar -xf node-v10.16.3-linux-x64.tar.xz$ sudo rm -r *.tar.xz$ cd node-v10.16.3-linux-x64$ sudo cp -R * /usr/local/
Check the version
$ node -vv10.16.3$ npm -v6.9.0
And that's it for node.js!
First, head over to github and read up on the explorer: https://github.com/janoside/btc-rpc-explorer
Ok, now we are going to pull the repo using git (alternatively you can use wget) and install it using npm.
$ git clone https://github.com/janoside/btc-rpc-explorer.git$ cd btc-rpc-explorer$ npm install
Now we need to set the .env file. To do this we are going to edit the .env-sample file, then save as .env to activate it.
$ sudo nano .env-sample##Make sure you UNCOMMENT out the following:BTCEXP_HOST=127.0.0.1BTCEXP_PORT=3002 (you can change this, you will put this in the web browser)BTCEXP_BITCOIND_HOST=192.168.X.XX (this should be the IP of you pi you configured in the Electrs guide)BTCEXP_BITCOIND_PORT=28256 (if default dojo)BTCEXP_BITCOIND_USER=dojoRPCusernameBTCEXP_BITCOIND_PASS=dojoRPCpasswrodBTCEXP_BITCOIND_RPC_TIMEOUTRest are optional, but I opted for the following:BTCEXP_DEMOBTCEXP_PRIVACY_MODEBTCEXP_BASIC_AUTH_PASSWORD=(whatever you want)##One you are happy with your settings..Ctrl+X, y, (delete the .env-sample, type: .env) Enter
Ok, now we are all set... all thats left is to start.
$ npm run$ npm start
Go to 127.0.0.1:3002 (or whatever port you used) and you should now have access to your full explorer!
