Installing tesseract for node.js

I have a simple node.js express app that I use render to serve a website. I need to add a dependency on this node.js package: GitHub - zapolnoch/node-tesseract-ocr: A Node.js wrapper for the Tesseract OCR API

But, the package depends on tesseract being actually installed. How do I do this?

Thanks for reaching out.

The Tesseract library is also not included on our Native Runtimes.

This topic has been covered a number of times on our community forum, e.g. (custom OS-level packages, will often require a Docker setup).

Kind regards
