Install pixlet on raspberry pi zero


I’m trying to install pixlet on a raspberry pi zero, following suggestions in this forum and I was able to get through the steps on the latter page up to step 4, where I get the following error

[email protected]:~/pixlet $ npm install
npm WARN read-shrinkwrap This version of npm is compatible with lockfileVersio[email protected], but package-lock.json was generated for [email protected] I'll try to do my best with it!
npm ERR! notsup Unsupported platform for [email protected]: wanted {"os":"darwin","arch":"any"} (current: {"os":"linux","arch":"arm"})
npm ERR! notsup Valid OS:    darwin
npm ERR! notsup Valid Arch:  any
npm ERR! notsup Actual OS:   linux
npm ERR! notsup Actual Arch: arm

I’d appreciate any guidance. Thanks!

It looks like you’re trying to install the darwin (macOS) version instead of the Linux version.

Gordon is right, the architecture is incorrect. Did you have a successful installation, after correcting to the os to arm?

I’m sorry, I guess I am too much of a newbie. I thought the source was platform independent, or at least I don’t know how to correct it. It does work pretty far through the install, and seems to have trouble only after pages of activity in the log file.
