give Build Status

give ('git-versioned environment', name courtesy of @AvianFlu) is a git-based node.js/io.js version manager.

It allows you to install anything git can checkout from either node's or io.js's repos:

  • tags: give install node v0.6.10
  • commits: give install iojs 3f43b1c039727e12c7a27fb31010aa309a4a35d8
  • branches: give install iojs master

It's also very fast - instead of doing git checkout it uses git archive which is very fast on local repositories.

Installation

npm install -g give

Getting started

give install iojs v1.3.0 # will install version v1.3.0 of io.js
give use iojs v1.3.0     # will use version v1.3.0 of io.js (drops you into a subshell)
^D                       # will quit to original shell
