Thanks to you can host your own copy of Mind Map like I did at


Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

and npm is the package manager for the Node JavaScript platform.&160; It puts modules in place so that node can find them, and manages dependency
conflicts intelligently. It is extremely configurable to support a wide variety of use cases. Most commonly, it is used to publish, discover, install, and develop node programs. (

Short How To

sudo apt-get install nodejs npm
unzip cd master
npm install
jake -f Jakefile.js

Now you can copy the content of the ./bin directory to any web root and you are good to go!

Longer version

These are all the error I havve encounter and how I did solve them

TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'existsSync'

This is because your version of nodejs is tool old: nodejs 0.6&160; moved path.existsSync to fs.existsSync, so if you're using an old version of node then fs.existsSync will be broken.

Check your current version of node.js

# nodejs –version

was returning v0.6.19 on my box

To update to the latest version v0.10.25, you’ll have to rely on an external ppa

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nodejs

Now you should have the latest version of node.js

npm http 404;&160; npm ERR! registry error parsing json

Either set the registry to not use SSL globally

sudo npm config set registry

or specify the registry and get manually the required dependencies

sudo npm install uglify-js --registry
sudo npm install node-static --registry
sudo npm install -g jake --registry

npm WARN cannot run in wd

The Node.js&160; package manager ca not run in working directory

npm WARN package.json node-static@0.5.9 No repository field.
npm WARN prefer global jake@0.7.6 should be installed with -g
npm WARN cannot run in wd mindmaps@0.7.3 npm install -g jake (wd=/xxx/…)

You need to run npm as sudo or without permission checks

sudo npm install --unsafe-perm

a successful install should look like

sudo npm install 

npm WARN package.json node-static@0.5.9 No repository field. npm WARN prefer global jake@0.7.6 should be installed with -g > mindmaps@0.7.3 postinstall /mindmap/build > npm install -g jake npm http GET npm http 304 npm http GET npm http GET npm http 304 npm http 304 npm http GET npm http GET npm http 304 npm http 304 /usr/bin/jake -> /usr/lib/node_modules/jake/bin/cli.js jake@0.7.6 /usr/lib/node_modules/jake ├── This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. └── This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (sigmund@1.0.0, lru-cache@2.5.0)

Last step is to run the jakefile with jake. The finished build will appear in /bin.

jake -f Jakefile.js
