Aquifer has one system requirement: Node.js. We suggest using nvm to install Node.js and npm:
curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.28.0/install.sh | bash
nvm install stable
nvm use stable
nvm alias default stable
Aquifer is an npm module, and can be installed by running:
npm install -g aquifer
