    @guillaum3f Could you solve your problem? I have the same one.
    guys one question.. I love using n to update and so much.. but Im having a problem with Atom.. I tried to run inside atom and it gives "unable to run: node" I tried "whereis node" to add to path or something but I cant make it work..
    does anyone had this problem?
    Wilson López

    From my POV this is the exact same as terminal
    But i have not put much research into this product


    hey guys when I type n and it said no installed version, but I have already installed the node. what's wrong wrong with that?
    Gabriel Schroder
    Hey all, I just installed n last night, and I'm pretty sure when I installed and changed back to 0.12.0, it downgraded npm back to 2.5.1, from 3.3.6. But when I switch back to node v5, the version of npm stays the same. Is there some configuration option I missed, or should I report this as a bug?
    If anyone knows the answer to @knotech 's question please mention me as well.

    Hi all! is there a way to automaticalli switch the node version when entering to a project/dir ? like a .nrc config file?

    was curious as to if anyone else was having trouble getting 'n' to work with zshell?
    Brian Hanna
    Hey, I'm new to this library. Is there a way to specify what version of NPM gets installed with a specific version of Node.js? I'm trying to make sure I'm emulating a production environment exactly.
    Gibran Malheiros
    there's no way @TheHanna, but it's as easy as npm install --global npm@X.X.X! Just replace the Xs with the version you want.

    Any hints on my bash script here? Although I have $(n stable) in my file it gives me an error saying “invalid version”. im a bash newb so please forgive me if there is a simple fix.

    by removing the wrapping $() I am no longer experiencing the error. Though if anyone has any explanation, I’m all ears. :sparkles:

    @andrewowen yes I am using oh-my-zsh on macOS and n is foobarred using that zsh. still not sure how to fix it

    I assume it's possible install n local to a project, and then setting up an npm script to run it

      "scripts": {
         "n": "n"

    And then run it with npm run n x.x.x

    Victoria French
    Thanks. It fixed itself once I rebooted.

    Hey guys, i somehow managed to screw up "n"
    when typing n, i get a list of my versions; so far so good. when i use my up/down arrows i get this:
    usage: grep [-abcDEFGHhIiJLlmnOoqRSsUVvwxZ] [-A num] [-B num] [-C[num]]
    [-e pattern] [-f file] [--binary-files=value] [--color=when]
    [--context[=num]] [--directories=action] [--label] [--line-buffered]
    [--null] [pattern] [file ...]
    from here on nothing works. Any solutions to that?

    Greetings. Have a question and am pretty novice with all this.

    When I run from administrator command prompt:

    npm install -g n

    I get a ERR code EBADPLATFORM message.

    I have a problem suddenly n is not working on me,
    is this a bug should i file an issue?
    Tom Hauburger
    Does n have a cut-off for node versions? I'm trying to install 0.4.3 for a legacy project, and am getting "invalid version"
    Arjun Komath

    Hey guys, After running n latest, n itself stopped working in macOS Sierra
    usage: grep [-abcDEFGHhIiJLlmnOoqRSsUVvwxZ] [-A num] [-B num] [-C[num]] [-e pattern] [-f file] [--binary-files=value] [--color=when] [--context[=num]] [--directories=action] [--label] [--line-buffered] [--null] [pattern] [file ...]

    While selecting this pops up!

    hey guys, i have "Allow incoming connections dialog" (Allow, deny) presumably after i installed n and/or switched versions. My node come from brew. Is there any way to allow incoming connections automatically?
    Joseph Haig
    Is there an Ubuntu package for n?
    Also, what was the rationale for calling it ’n’? Trying to search for information about something with a single character name is incredibly hard.

    There is a docker image I created called troy0820/node-n:latest that's ubuntu:14.04
