@ljharb
sure, you mean like a general section about terminal colors?
also that nvm alias x prints out what "x" is :-)
nvm --help should also probably say those things if it doesn't already
@willwh a PR would be great :-)

@ljharb groovy, am at work right now, with deadlines, I promise I will crank something out over the weekend though

@ljharb
sounds great

hey how to use nvm for windows
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@jimmyYSY nvm only works on windows if you're using the linux subsystem
jimmy · YIN
@jimmyYSY
@ljharb sorry I don't quite understand
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@jimmyYSY windows 10 has a thing called "BashOnWindows", or "the linux subsystem", which gives you a unix-like command line interface. that's required to run nvm on windows; otherwise you'll need a different software projecct.

@jimmyYSY
@ljharb ok thanks i will try again

Does nvim run OK on Windows' bash? I joined a company to work with C# after a long time away from Windows, so I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble trying to use nvim on it
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
it should work fine
Ricardo Oliveira
@rgoliveira
Ok, thanks. I tried out nvim-qt and it's kinda ok for me, but I prefer to use it on the terminal
Oh, crap, I thought I had joined neovim's gitter 😂
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
oh lol
you said nvim, not nvm. yeah no idea about neovim
cswl
@cswl
How do I update node.js install... there doesnt seem to be a update command
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@cswl there's not. nvm is for managing multiple versions, so if you need a different one, you just install it
cswl
@cswl
Just installing the version like nvm install lts or node does fetch the latest one.. while it doesnt uninstal the older version... kinda tedious I guess I will write a script for it..
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@mukhtorov this channel is for nvm, not react.

@mukhtorov
ah, sorry

Hopefully someone can help me with an nvm issue I'm having. I'm currently using node version 10.5 but anytime I globally install an npm package, it installs to a 9.4.0 directory .../.nvm/versions/node/v9.4.0. I can't seem to figure out how to get nvm to install to the directory that I'm currently in. Is there a command I can run for this?
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@thedubb what does nvm current print out, and npm root -g?

Hi guys, can someone please check above image as to why it's happening :/
shouldn't require('<global package name>') just work for me? if yes, can someone please guide me thru steps to fix this.
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@sameeroath no, global packages are never requireable
things you require are dependencies - thus they must be in your package.json and locally installed.
global packages are only for non-project-specific command line tools, which are very very rare. almost everything should only ever be locally installed.
sameeroath
@sameeroath
hmm so codename wont be available in node repl even if its globally installed?
Screenshot 2019-02-27 10.24.08.png
:point_up: and this is fine?
i can require global package by setting that NODE_PATH env
i don't use global packages on projects/apps just using this setup for ad hoc scripts etc.
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
never do that tho
NODE_PATH is both terrible and deprecated
if you want to require it, make a folder with a package.json or use npx
sameeroath
@sameeroath
i see thanks @ljharb will remove it
Avaray
@Avaray
--reinstall-packages-from Does it just copy files from directory to directory OR it is creating list of global packages, downloading and installing them?
if it is downloading and installing them: does it install the same versions or Latest versions?
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@Avaray the latter, same versions
Avaray
@Avaray
@ljharb thanks
