I search for this constantly, and although many of these answers are quite right in citing that V8 isn't iOS compatible, it seems that running a nodelike environment within iOS isn't all that impossible.

The first option I discovered was called "Neunode" (hasn't been updated in a year). Here are some reference links if you want more:


Nodelike / Node.app Project

Nodelike is the core framework of the Node.app project, which has the goal to implement a roughly Node.JS-compatible interface using JavaScriptCore.framework on iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks.

Example: Interpreter

an example project implementing a Node.JS interpreter as an iOS app, utilising the Nodelike framework.

Edit:

It is still "not viable for serious projects" but checkout updates at: https://github.com/node-app/Nodelike


Overall, The Node.app Project looks promising, be sure to checkout their website
