This isn't an error . In local.md file after installing nvm using curl .It says to run nvm after exporting NVR_DIR. Simply i am not getting what it means.

@abhishek981996 NVM stands for node version manager.If you work with a lot of different Node.js utilities, you know that sometimes you need to quickly switch to other versions of Node.js without hosing your entire machine. That's where you can use nvm to download, install, and use different versions of Node.js.

Those steps stated in the local installation are simply used for installing nvm on your machine. After that we use nvm to install a particular version of node.js(the version mentioned in the docs is 6.91). Hope this clears it a bit.
