    ive been meaning to catch up with you a bit when we have some time

    @marcelklehr
    Hello! I've finally managed to test npm version switching -- works splendidly!
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    My windows machine self-destructed today, so I will probably not be able to test nodist for a while... I'll still try and push v0.8 forward with your help!
    @pyhedgehog Does installing nodist via chocolatey work atm?
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    I'm testing nodist on my linux machine now :) The cli should work regardless...
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    Apparently the nodejs guys have changed their dist/index.json file... grrm

    I wonder if nodist can update nodist? I have 0.7.2, it can't update npm
    so now I'm wondering what is a best way to update nodist itself
    (mistake, I have 0.7.1)
    oh darn it, this worked:
    "npm install npm -g"
    Jari Pennanen
    @Ciantic
    though, can't still update nodist easily, but it's probably not required anymore
    one package manager to rule them all, I wish this worked "npm install nodist -g"
    to update nodist

    @marcelklehr
    Does anybody have some free time + a windows machine at hand and would like to build and test the upcoming 0.8.x features?
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    @Ciantic nodist currently can't update itself :) I'm looking for a maintainer for the chocolatey package, though. Would that interest you?
    Bryan Tong
    @nullivex
    @Ciantic it is difficult to update nodist that way since it cannot live as a portable app and get Windows to act correctly. The desired upgrade path should be re-running the nodist installer. That is something that could use some more testing.
    @marcelklehr I am going to do some more testing this week. Been a never ending river of busy lately.
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    That would be great! I still don't have a suitable windows machine at hand. master has everything that is staged for 0.8.0 right now.
    Bryan Tong
    @nullivex
    Okay, I will test from there and make PRs as I need to fix stuff. I have an RDP we can test on.
    Jari Pennanen
    @Ciantic
    not a maintainer type of a guy, sorry. Good work nontheless, even if you are not maintaining it anymore (since you have no Windows at hand anymore I gather)
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    I never thought I'd be happy to have a windows machine again :)
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    Alright, I resurrected my old windows machine -- it runs in virtualbox on my linux system now, this time I'm Admin, so I can test the installer properly.
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    I feel like I've abused the tag "release candidate", but heck, going back to beta now seems even worse, so here is nodist v0.8.0-rc4:
    • The installer works on x86, too, now
    • x64 auto-detection on install should work (not tested yet, though)
    • fixed build script to account for unzip madness

    @nullivex
    Did they push a new node-progress yet
    I have a PR pending that adds the rate to the progress bar. They are supposed to be releasing a new version in a couple of days.
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    Ah, great!
    Bryan Tong
    @nullivex
    hi
    is anyone here?
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    yup.

    Hello
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    hey!
    how's things?
    Bryan Tong
    @nullivex
    great, i have been super happy with how much nodist has grown!
    not to mention when i had to install it on a couple computers in the last couple months, its been a breeze
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    that's nice to hear :) When you get mostly bug reports you start to forget how much actually works... :)
    (Still, the main big issues atm are signals being lost by the shim and having to reinstall native global modules when changing major node versions)
    Also, I'm participating in the discussion group initiated by the node foundation about efforts for an "official" node version manager...
    Bryan Tong
    @nullivex
    Yea i read that, and was happy they included the project. I think a lot of the ways you handle things are superior aside from the shim having some issues.
    However, I feel like those issues are coming to surface because there is more and more widespread use. That blog post I put together using it gets a lot of traffic as well.

    Your not the only one that has an issue with the globals anyway for the most part it work brilliantly what do people recommend for Mac it must be able to auto switch between setup folders and global env.

    Hello, is it possible to use nodist from the Github source?

    Hi anyone here
    Marcel Klehr
    @marcelklehr
    hey there!
    sorry, gitter email notifications were broken for some time...
    @brianrt I think so, yes. There's no guide for installation, though.

    Hello Everyone, I wanted to announce that Nullivex Software Consortium (NSC) will be maintaining Nodist. We will be merging pull requests and building a roadmap over the next 2 months working towards a 1.0 release. Happy coding!
