Managing multiple node versions

I'm trying to figure out how to manage multiple node versions for a variety of different projects for our Bamboo server.


I can't seem to figure out how to include multiple versions of node from 0.10 to 5.0.0 in bamboo and have projects build from differing versions of node while managing the node_modules folder.


What is the best way to handle installing/handling multiple node versions and builds?


Thank you

@Joseph Kim  how did you resolved the issue?? I used NVM. Just installed in my server and and when running bamboo task. It doesn't recognize nvm  or node as commands.

But when only node.js is installed , bamboo recognizes node command. 

Can you help me with that please...

NVM is a useful tool, depending on the complexity of the environment you are trying to test with:

This would allow you to declare a specific version of node via the command-line, and subsequently execute the corresponding code with whatever node_modules folder you needed.

I would suggest caching the request to the NVM script (from the link above) so you could control how this was being executed in your own environment (rather than relying on a 3rd party source).

To further develop this answer: If you were looking to do something which ran multiple versions of node on the same agent, you could bypass the node path and directly access the place that nvm stores the node binary and global node_modules. For each version of node, the path is switched accordingly. A question: Are you trying to run multiple versions of node in tandem with each other on the same agent? If so...why? Would a docker-ized solution work better for this kind of situation?

We'll try out the NVM solution just to try it out. We're trying to stay away from having to set up dockers. We have use cases across multiple versions of node and RHELS

how do you switch the node versions using the Bamboo Node.js Plugin?
