change-to-an-older-version-of-node
Published: 17 April 2018

Today I’m going to be exploring how to manage multiple installations of Node.js on a windows computer following an issue I recently came across whilst working on a project.

The project I was working on required me to update my version of Node.js; a pretty straightforward process, until I then returned to an older project that was dependent on an earlier version of Node.

Upon this realisation, I completed a quick search and stumbled across a useful tool that can be installed on your Windows machine:

The Node Version Manager. You can find it at https://github.com/coreybutler/nvm-windows

It allows you to easily install and manage multiple versions of node. Here's a snippet from the help:

Usage:

nvm install <version>       Download and install a <version>

nvm use <version>            Modify PATH to use <version>

 nvm ls                             List versions (installed versions are blue)

 

A simple install by downloading and running the nvm-setup.zip. Then simply this simply allows you to switch your Node versions, also the ability to use install commands.

An example of my commands below:
