Just don't include the cmake flag that disables node.
Also, note that you'll want to use the raw pin references with mraa so they match up with the gpio board.
While the above sparkfun article is useful for installing MRAA for python, it is not so helpful for Node JS. To start, one needs to load swig 3.0+. I did this with the following commands:
These installs are needed to compile swig 3.0.5
# apt-get install libpcre3 libpcre3-dev
download latest swig from http://www.swig.org/download.html v3.0.5
# make install
# git clone https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/mraa.git
# mkdir mraa/build && cd $_
# cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/usr
# make install
The final step is to load the latest node mraa library with # npm install mraa
Unfortunately, this yields the following errors:
gyp ERR! build error

Any idea of what I am doing wrong?
ANY TIPS OR POINTERS are GREATLY appreciate. Will summarize install instructions once I get this working.....
