Hello Everyone today I will show you how you can manage multiple Node Js version on a single System.
Let's get started...
What is the need for having multiple Node JS Version?
Well a few weeks ago I was working on a Project Created with JSP(Java Servlet Pages) and webpack, So the "SASS" node package has some dependency on other packages which is only supported in the old version of Node JS like v14, So I installed v14.16.0 and everything worked fine for that time But after few days when I was working with "Next JS" I have to use "SASS" node package but It only compiles the SASS code for Node JS v18+.
I can't install V18 because that JSP Project was still in progress.
There comes the saviour NVM(Node version Manager),with 1 line of command i could easily switch between multiple version of Node JS.
How to install NVM?
- For Windows - https://github.com/coreybutler/nvm-windows/releases, go to this link and download the ".exe" file and install it.
- For Mac and Linux - You can check some articles on how to install nvm as I am not familiar with Mac and Linux.
- Once the installation is done, open your command prompt or VS Code terminal and run this command
- It will show you the nvm version if installed properly
How to install Multiple Node Js version?
- To install any node js version just type this command with version number you want to install
nvm install <version_number>
- Example 1 - It will install the latest version
nvm install latest
- Example 2 - It will install the v14.16.0
nvm install 14.16.0
If you want to delete any version just use this command
nvm uninstall <version_number>
How to switch between different versions?
- You can use this command to switch between different versions
nvm use <version_number // Example nvm use 14.16.0
- It will switch to version 14.16.0
