Give me a semver range and I'll tell you the latest node version that satisfies it.
node-version-resolver is a node module that can be use programatically or from the command line. It downloads a list of all Node.js versions from nodejs.org/dist and exposes a simple API for selecting the latest stable (and unstable) versions, as well as matching the version list against a semver range.
node-version-resolver's functionality is also available as an HTTP webservice at semver.io.
0.8.6 is the oldest available version of node returned by this library.
This choice was made because nodejs.org does not provide builds of older
npm install node-version-resolver --save
Pass a semver range argument to find what version of Node.js currently satisfies it:
node-version-resolver 0.10.x # 0.10.22
Or omit the argument to get the latest stable version:
node-version-resolver # 0.10.22
node-version-resolver is designed to work even if nodejs.org is down or slow
to respond. If the GET request to nodejs.org/dist/
takes too long to resolve, a local copy of
cache/node.html file will be
loaded instead. To update the cached file, run:
npm run updateCache
npm test initialization ✓ has an array of all versions ✓ has an array of stable versions ✓ has a latest_stable version ✓ has a latest_unstable version ✓ defaults to latest stable version when given crazy input satisfy() ✓ honors explicit version strings ✓ matches common patterns to stable version ✓ uses latest unstable version when request version is beyond stable version override ✓ becomes latest_stable ✓ satisfies stable-seeking ranges ✓ still resolves unstable ranges ✓ still resolves versions at a higher patchlevel than the override
