Okay, we have talked in the past about mining for CoinHive in the terminal. The only option presented was to run chromium in headless mode. I just found a project on github that implements the CoinHive API in Node.js making a fully fledge application to mine XMR. It has a nice UI (still terminal), allows us to create a master server and run slaves controlled by this server and even let’s us use a pool other than CoinHive.

How to use?
First you need Node.js. I believe that the version must be at least
8.0. You can install it by following the instructions here.
You need to install the dependencies. For debian based distros do the following.
sudo apt-get -y install gconf-service libasound2 libatk1.0-0 libc6 libcairo2 libcups2 libdbus-1-3 libexpat1 libfontconfig1 libgcc1 libgconf-2-4 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libglib2.0-0 libgtk-3-0 libnspr4 libpango-1.0-0 libpangocairo-1.0-0 libstdc++6 libx11-6 libx11-xcb1 libxcb1 libxcomposite1 libxcursor1 libxdamage1 libxfixes3 libxi6 libxrandr2 libxrender1 libxss1 libxtst6 ca-certificates fonts-liberation libappindicator1 libnss3 lsb-release xdg-utils wget libxext6
Now, you can install the application via npm.
sudo npm i -g coin-hive --unsafe-perm=true --allow-root
You are ready to use it!
sudo coin-hive 8GiCBvTene8ArpdPgDjPt2tUIIr4NrXM --username FFY00
8GiCBvTene8ArpdPgDjPt2tUIIr4NrXM is 0x00sec’s CoinHIve API key. If you want to mine for other website you need to replace it.
