You can skip this section if you already have a working Node.js
>=12.0 installation. If not, here's how to install it on Ubuntu, MacOS and Windows.
Copy and paste these commands in a terminal:
sudo apt update sudo apt install curl git curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_12.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt install nodejs
Make sure you have
git installed. Otherwise, follow these instructions (opens new window).
There are multiple ways of installing Node.js on MacOS. We will be using Node Version Manager (nvm) (opens new window). Copy and paste these commands in a terminal:
curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.35.2/install.sh | bash nvm install 12 nvm use 12 nvm alias default 12 npm install npm --global # Upgrade npm to the latest version
Installing Node.js on Windows requires a few manual steps. We'll install git, Node.js 12.x and npm. Download and run these:
If your version of Node.js is older than
12.0 follow the instructions below to upgrade.
sudo apt remove nodejsin a terminal to remove Node.js.
sudo apt update && sudo apt install nodejsin a terminal to install Node.js again.
You can change your Node.js version using nvm (opens new window). To upgrade to Node.js
12.x run these in a terminal:
nvm install 12 nvm use 12 nvm alias default 12 npm install npm --global # Upgrade npm to the latest version
