How to Manage Node Versions with n

November 22, 2019

n is an npm package by TJ Holowaychuk for Node version management. It's amazing.

To Install

npm install -g n

To Use

# Installs and uses node @ version XX.XX.XX

# Adding the optional "v" before the version number installs and uses node @ version NN.LL.LL (Where LL equals the latest minor version + patch version for version NN)
n vNN

# Installs and uses node LTS (Long Term Support) version
n lts

# Check node version
node -v

Yep, it's that easy.

Note: You may need to use 'sudo n xx.xx.xx' if prompted by the terminal.
