Updating Nodejs on mac

0 votes

I'm using macOS Big Sur and would like to upgrade my Node. However, after downloading and installing the file from the official website, my terminal still displays and uses the old node version.

Is there anyone who can help me solve this problem?

I recommend that you use nvm. It's a lot easier and eliminates the hassle of updating.

nvm

To do this, you can install nvm. https://github.com/nvm-sh/nvm#installing-and-updating

you will be pasting in the curl command curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nvm-sh/nvm/v0.39.1/install.sh | bash

Note: when this is finished running, you should see a line near the bottom which says something like export NVM_DIR="$HOME/.nvm"

Copy and paste this and hit enter.

Then check to make sure you have nvm installed now nvm -v

Nodejs update

After, in the terminal, type: nvm install node (you can also check your current version first with node -v

Run it and then check node version again. It should be updated.

npm

While you're at it, you can also update npm.

Check version npm -v Update npm install -g npm

This should do it. Let me know if there are any issues. Note: this can all be done in the -zsh shell, no reason to move back to bash.
