Listing globally installed NPM packages without dependencies
$ npm ls -g --depth=0 /Users/Marius/.nvm/versions/node/v5.11.0/lib ├── [email protected] ├── [email protected] ├── [email protected] ├── [email protected] ├── [email protected] ├── [email protected] └── [email protected]
Instal new version of Node.js with NVM and make it default
In place of a version pointer like
6.0, you can use the following special default aliases with
nvm which, etc:
node: this installs the latest version of node
# this will install the latest node.js nvm install node # make and alias nvm alias default node # use the default version nvm use default
If you set a
default alias for specific version of nodejs than any new terminal window will use that nodejs version.
Migrate npm packages from a previous version of Node.js:
nvm install node --reinstall-packages-from=node
Change Node.js version with .nvmrc file
Create a .nvmrc file containing version number in the project root directory. Now you can use
nvm run, and
nvm which will all respect an .nvmrc file when a version is not supplied.
Run the following commands from your project root directory
# Create .nvmrc file with node version in it echo "6.0" > .nvmrc # Use this to change the version if you have it installed nvm use # Install the nodejs version from .nvmrc file nvm install
Automatic change nodejs version when you
cd in your project
AVN is Automatic Version Switching for Node.js. Now when you cd into a directory with a
.node-version file, avn will automatically detect the change and use your installed version manager to switch to that version of node.
