Installing on any platform

The simplest way to install Elm is via Node.js/NPM.

If you don't already have Node.js installed on your computer, you can download it from the official site. Once you have Node.js up and running, you can install elm and elm-test using

npm install -g elm elm-test

which will install elm and place any tooling on $PATH.
