Nide is a web-based IDE for Node.JS, designed with simplicity and ease-of-use in mind.
You can run Nide locally or install it on your remote server, and access it through your Web browser.
The Nide IDE is available both as a command-line tool and as a standalone Mac app. Please note that currently Windows is unsupported. (We're working on that)
To install Nide as a command-line tool, you'll need both Node.JS and NPM installed. (NPM is included by default with Node.JS, starting with version 0.6.3). You can grab Node.JS here.
With Node.JS installed, open a terminal and run:
sudo npm install -g nide
