Default [Q] node.js npm on Android

Hello,

I built node.js for android and it is running great.

Now i need some modules for a new project (serialport,express,socket.io) but I can't use npm on my android device, since i cross compiled node and just put the executable on the device.

Is there a way to use npm on android or what would be the best way to do it?

I also tried building the packages on an arm qemu but the modules weren't working o the android box.

What I am trying to do at the moment is including the modules as core modules when building node, but I am unsure what to include. All modules and all the modules that those modules depend on, etc. etc. This doesn't sound right?

I am following these instructions, that were for a similar problem: github / mapbox / building for android (can't post link sadly)

What would be the best way to achieve it?

Kind regards, egon

I now got it running by installing debian kit on the android box.
Then I just installed node and npm from package manager and did "npm install" in my project folder which worked.
