installing nvm

 

First you’ll need to make sure your system has a c++ compiler. For OSX, XCode will work, for Ubuntu, the build-essential and libssl-dev packages work.

To install create a folder somewhere in your filesystem with the “nvm.sh” file inside it. I put mine in a folder called “.nvm“.

Or if you have git installed, then just clone it:

 

git clone git://github.com/creationix/nvm.git ~/.nvm 

To activate nvm, you need to source it from your bash shell

. ~/.nvm/nvm.sh 

I always add this line to my ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile file to have it automatically sources upon login.
Often I also put in a line to use a specific version of node.

Usage

To download, compile, and install the v0.4.1 release of node, do this:

nvm install v0.4.1 

And then in any new shell just use the installed version:

nvm use v0.4.1 

If you want to see what versions are available:

nvm ls
