Download a specific version of Node.js.

This is cached: if the output directory already has a node executable, no download will be performed.

Works on Linux/Mac/Windows.

Example

# Download Node.js latest release
$ get-node
$ ./12.8.0/node
Welcome to Node.js v12.8.0.
Type ".help" for more information.
> .exit

# Download a specific Node.js release
$ get-node 8
$ ./8.16.0/node
> process.version
'v8.16.0'
> .exit

# Any version range can be used
$ get-node 8.12.0
$ get-node '<7'

# Specify the output directory
$ get-node 12 ~/.cache/node_releases/
$ ~/.cache/node_releases/12.8.0/node --version
v12.8.0

Install

npm install get-node

node >=8.12.0 must already be installed.

Usage

get-node [VERSION] [OUTPUT_DIRECTORY]

VERSION can be any version range such as 12, 12.6.0 or <12.

Node.js mirror

The binary is downloaded from https://nodejs.org/dist. You can specify a mirror website using the environment variable NODE_MIRROR.

NODE_MIRROR="https://npm.taobao.org/mirrors/node" get-node [VERSION] [OUTPUT_DIRECTORY]
