Note that it takes up quite a bit of space, so you will most likely need to transfer your rootfs to USB storage to install both NPM and node.
So, is it most likely, or is it always that way?... Most likely = MUST?
Why not write MUST in the first place. IF you already know that starting from scratch requires the use of external storage, please be more clear about that in the post.
The disappointing thing is, as far as I have read in the community, that Blynk, node.js, and almost any cool use requires external storage!
It adds space, power consumption, complexity...
It's a shame that all the beauty of the onion (small, simple, compact) is lost because of the insufficient storage :(
Can we expect to have a lighter/streamlined release that does not require external storage?
