How to install multiple Node.js versions on macOS M1/M2

in General Write a comment

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to run multiple Node.js versions on a new Mac and easily switch between them.

Remove existing Node.js version

First of all, let’s remove the existing Node.js version from your computer.

brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies node
brew uninstall --force node

Install NVM using Homebrew

Let’s install Node Version Manager (NVM). It will allow us to manage multiple active node.js versions.

brew install nvm

Install Node.js via NVM

You can now install a specific Node.js version or install a LTS (Long-term support version).

nvm install --lts


nvm install 12.7.0

That’s it. Now you can switch between different Node.js versions using the following command.

nvm use 16
node -v

nvm use 12
node -v

I hope you learned something new today. And if you did, please leave a comment and check other Node.js tutorials.
