nvm --help should also probably say those things if it doesn't already
@willwh a PR would be 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
sespaces
@sespaces
install.sh uses "${XDG_CONFIG_HOME-}" but what is the purpose of the hyphen near the end? it seems extraneous
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@sespaces it avoids a warning being issued if set -x is used and the variable is not defined.

@dkovacevic15
hey friends, can anyone explain why nvm has the install-latest-npm command? what's wrong with just running nvm install followed by npm install --global npm@latest?
Jordan Harband
@ljharb
@dkovacevic15 because the latest version of npm breaks hard on older node versions
and the logic to know which npm is actually safest on which node version is very complex, so i put it in nvm
