Managing Versions of Node.js

In this post, we discuss how to manage the different versions of Node.js installed on your system for development and / or testing.


The Node version manager (nvm) allow one to easily switch between different versions of node and Node package manager (npm). Here are useful nvm commands:


To list installed versions of Node.js:

nvm list


To install a specific version of Node.js (e.g., 12.3.1):

nvm install 12.3.1


To switch to a specific version of Node.js (e.g., 12.3.1):

nvm use 12.3.1


To set the default version of Node.js (e.g., 12.3.1):

nvm alias default 12.3.1
