The above article shows how to install enough onto your phone to allow basic development.

Here is some of the history from my first session

1 apt update && apt upgrade
2 apt install coreutils
8 which awk
9 which sed
10 which grep
11 which curl

# not found so installed via
12 pkg install curl
13 curl
19 apt install vim
21 apt install nodejs
22 which node
24 node -v
25 history

Given that I now have node, vim, curl, grep, awk and sed this looks to be a useful base platform.
