How to install Google Coder on Archlinux ARM – Raspberry Pi

Hey everyone 😉

Today I’ll explain you how to install Coder on Archlinux ARM running on a Raspberry Pi.

First of all you need to install nodejs, it’s in the official repositories…to simply run:

pacman -S nodejs

as root and you are ready to go.

Then go to your /home directory and run: (make sure git is installed!) and:

git clone git://
cd coder/coder-base
npm install

If you prefer to run Coder on a different port than 80/443 (for example if you are running a web server on your Pi) you can edit coder/coder-base/config.js this way:

exports.listenIP = null; //Defaults to *
exports.listenPort = ‘9181’; //the SSL port things run on
exports.httpListenPort = ‘9180’; //this will all be redirected to SSL
exports.cacheApps = true;
exports.httpVisiblePort = ‘9080’; //forwarded http port the user sees
exports.httpsVisiblePort = ‘9443’; //forwarded https port the user sees

Now there is a little problem… basically Coder assumes that an account named “pi” exists and it tries to set a password related to that account..

Simply go to coder/coder-base/sudo_scripts and edit setpipass, remove the “/usr/bin/passwd pi” line and save the file.

 Then run as root:

cd coder/coder-base
npm start

Now open your browser on your computer and visit: https://RASPIPADDRESS:9181/
You are ready to set your Coder password and start coding!


If you want to make Coder to run at system startup since Archlinux has implemented systemd you can create a new unit like the one below and then enable it:

Description=Google Coder

ExecStart=/bin/npm start


My Raspberry Pi Project – GPIO

Hi Guys 😉

Today I’ll introduce you my Raspberry Pi Project.

It’s basically a Python2 Script which controls an LCD Display, A Button, a LED and a Temperature Sensor.
It prints a lot of informations about the system, check for running services, air terperature and humidity on the LCD.

Check it out 😉

And Here you can find the script:

Testing Elementary OS 0.2 Luna

Today I decided to give Elementary OS 0.2 a try! I installed it on my old laptop (with Centrino Dual Core processor) and I have to admit It works really well!
I’m very excited! Good work Elementary 😉
It’s fast, simple and easy to use…Mostly it’s based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS..that’s a good point for stability 😉
I hope Pantheon (DE) will work so well and fast on Arch ASAP too! 😛
…Great impression BTW…
EDIT: New Look!
Installed slim-wingpanel 😉
And …. New Kernel!
