If a project uses a specific version of node a
.nvmrc file can be
generated with the following command.
# echo $(node -v) >> .nvmrc node -v >> .nvmrc
When using the project for the first time (in a while maybe) then use
nvm use command to make sure you’re using the correct node
nvm use # Found '/home/project-name/.nvmrc' with version <v14.16.0> # Now using node v14.16.0 (npm v6.14.11)
Say you want to install Node v6.9.1 you would write on the terminal:
nvm install 6
If you have multiple versions of Node.js installed on your workspace, you can switch to a specific version by writing:
nvm use 0.10.40
Making a node version default
In order to set a default version of node for your workspace, type:
nvm alias default 6
Where 6 was the version you wanted to be used as default.
