How To Install NVM (Node Version Manager) on Fedora 23

Node Version Manager allows you to quickly install and manage node.js versions. It’s a bash script that has the capability to manage multiple active versions of node.js. It can be used to install node.js versions, execute commands with a specific node.js version, set the PATH variable to use a specific node.js version, and more. To learn more, visit the project’s Github page.

Pre-Flight Check

  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing NVM (Node Version Manager) on Fedora 23. To install NVM on another operating system, follow our guides for Fedora 21, CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. To install Node.js via NVM on Fedora 23, refer to our Knowledge Base article.
  • We’ll be logging in as root to a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 23 server.

Step #1: Install NVM (Node Version Manager)

Install the script with the following command:

curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.30.2/install.sh | bash

After running the above command, you may be instructed to close and re-open your terminal to begin using NVM. However, you also can begin using NVM immediately by running the following command:

source ~/.bashrc

Step #2: Verify the Installation

The following command will verify the installation by returning the currently installed version:

nvm --version

In this case, that yields the following output:

[root@host ~]# nvm --version
0.30.2

 

How To Install Node.js on Fedora 23

Node.js is a cross-platform runtime environment built on JavaScript. Applications also are written in JavaScript. Node.js lends itself to rapidly deploying, real-time web applications, and is considered extremely scalable due to its event-driven architecture. Node Version Manager allows admins to easily install and manage multiple node.js versions.

  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing Node.js via NVM (Node Version Manager) on Fedora 23. To install Node.js on another operating system, follow our guides for Fedora 21, CentOS 7, and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
  • We’ll be working as root on a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 23 server.

Step #1: Install NVM (Node Version Manager)

If NVM is not already installed, you’ll first want to follow our tutorial on How to Install NVM (Node Version Manager) for Node.js on Fedora 23 before proceeding.

Step #2: Check Available Node.js Versions

To view a list of the versions that are available for installation, run this command:

nvm ls-remote

In addition to selecting a specific version from the output of that command, you also can simply install the latest stable or unstable versions, as shown in the next step.

Step #3: Install a Node.js Version

  1. To download, compile, and install the latest version in the v0.12.x release of node.js, run this command:

    nvm install 0.12

  2. Now, to display currently activated version run:

    nvm current

    Which results in the following output:

    [root@host ~]# nvm current
    v0.12.9

    In this case, the server is running v0.12.9.

  3. To download, compile, and install the latest stable release of node.js, simply run:

    nvm install stable

  4. To show the currently activated version, run:

    nvm current

    In this case, that command returns the following output:

    [root@host ~]# nvm current
    v5.7.0

  5. You can list the currently installed node versions with the command:

    nvm ls

    which, in this case, produces the following output:

    [root@host ~]# nvm ls
    v0.12.9
    -> v5.7.0
    node -> stable (-> v5.7.0) (default)
    stable -> 5.7 (-> v5.7.0) (default)
    iojs -> N/A (default)

  6. Finally, if you want to modify PATH to use v0.12.9 again, you can use the following command:

    nvm use 0.12.9

    Which returns:

    [root@host ~]# nvm use 0.12.9
    Now using node v0.12.9 (npm v2.14.9)
