Hey @e27311886f59426b9d485b9a38,

NestJS is built on top of Node.js, so you’ll need to have Node.js installed on your Ubuntu system before you can download a NestJS app.

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get install nodejs

You’ll need to install npm as well.

  1. sudo apt-get install npm

Once you have Node.js and npm installed, you can clone the NestJS app from its repository. Navigate to the directory where you want to clone the app, and use the following command to clone the app

  1. git clone https://github.com/[username]/[app-name].git

Than go inside and run

  1. npm install
  1. npm run start
