Spike is distributed through npm, and can be installed as such:
$ npm install spike -g
It should be noted that Spike requires node v6 or above. To check your node version, run
node -v. If you need to upgrade, you can download a universal binary node installer from their website.
If you'd like to run Spike in a virtual environment, please note that NPM will require adequate memory to function properly. If you receive a "Killed" error upon compilation, there's a good chance you need to increase the amount of memory assigned to your VPS/VM.
