Before you can begin developing smart contracts on the Massa blockchain, you'll need to ensure that your development environment meets the following requirements:
- Node.js installed on your system.
We recommend updating Node.js and npm to the latest version for best performance and security.
To update npm, run the following commands:
npm install -g npm
To update Node.js, the recommended way is to use

If you do not already have
n installed, you can install it with the following command:
npm install -g n
n is installed, you can update to the latest version of Node.js with the following command:
Once you have an up-to-date Node.js, you're ready to start developing smart contracts on the Massa blockchain.
