node-waf is a tool shipped with Node.js to help build C++ files into a node.js compatible library or tool. It is only available if you installed node.js from source. 


The path to node-waf is usually in /usr/local/bin


If you see that node is installed in /usr/bin but not /usr/local/bin then you did not install node.js from source.

$ git clone

$ ./configure

$ make

$ sudo make install

And now you should see node-waf in /usr/local/bin

If you simply try to use node-waf without installing node you’ll see this error:

“ImportError: No module named Scripting”

Do not do this, instead install node.js.
