Fast Node Manager (fnm) Amount of downloads Build Status

πŸš€ Fast and simple Node.js version manager, built in ReasonML

Blazing fast!

Features

✨ Single file, easy installation

πŸš€ Built with speed in mind

πŸ€” Works with .nvmrc files

Installation

Using a script

For bash, zsh and fish shells, there's an automatic installation script:

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Schniz/fnm/master/.ci/install.sh | bash

Manually

  • Download the latest release binary for your system

  • Make it available globally on $PATH

  • Add the following line to your .bashrc/.zshrc file:

    eval `fnm env --multi`

    If you are using fish shell, add this line to your config.fish file:

    eval (fnm env --multi --fish)

Usage

You can always use fnm --help to read the docs:

fnm install [VERSION]

Installs [VERSION]. If no version provided, it will install the version specified in the .nvmrc file located in the current working directory.

fnm use [VERSION]

Activates [VERSION] as the current Node version. If no version provided, it will activate the version specified in the .nvmrc file located in the current working directory.

fnm ls

Lists the installed Node versions.

fnm ls-remote

Lists the Node versions available to download remotely.

fnm env [--multi] [--fish] [--node-dist-mirror=URI]

Prints the required shell commands in order to configure your shell, Bash compliant by default.

  • Providing --multi will output the multishell support, allowing a different current Node version per shell
  • Providing --fish will output the Fish-compliant version.
  • Providing --node-dist-mirror="https://npm.taobao.org/dist" will use the Chinese mirror of Node.js

Future Plans

  • Feature: make versions complete the latest: 10 would infer the latest minor and patch versions of node 10. 10.1 would infer the latest patch version of node 10.1
  • Feature: fnm use --install
  • Feature: fnm install lts?
  • OSX: Add to homebrew?
  • Windows Support?
  • Linux: Replace curl usage with cohttp/ocurl or something else which is statically-linkable
  • Linux: Replace tar with a statically linked library too (for ungzip + untar)
