How I make a .deb for a Node.js application that installs Node.js and its required npm modules on dpkg -i?

Which is the place in the filesystem where I have to put this application? (/opt,/usr/local).

Thanks in advance.


Here's an article + screencast on the subject:

How to create a .deb for NodeJS apps


I know this is kind of late.

Here is a ppa repo that might help you: https://launchpad.net/~chris-lea/+archive/node.js/

This installs node to a standard location. I consider installing with npm to local directories (part of the application) the best practice.

    Your answer isn't related to my question. I asked how build a .deb for a Node.js app, not install Node.js from a .deb. But thanks anyway :D – diosney Oct 8 '14 at 21:16
