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.

Check out the Quick Start Guide or CLI Documentation for next steps!

Installation On a VPS or VM

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.
