    node-version-resolver

    Give me a semver range and I'll tell you the latest node version that satisfies it.

    node-version-resolver is a node module that can be use programatically or from the command line. It downloads a list of all Node.js versions from nodejs.org/dist and exposes a simple API for selecting the latest stable (and unstable) versions, as well as matching the version list against a semver range.

    node-version-resolver's functionality is also available as an HTTP webservice at semver.io.

    Note: 0.8.6 is the oldest available version of node returned by this library. This choice was made because nodejs.org does not provide builds of older versions.

    Installation

    npm install node-version-resolver --save

    Command-Line Usage

    Pass a semver range argument to find what version of Node.js currently satisfies it:

    node-version-resolver 0.10.x
    # 0.10.22 

    Or omit the argument to get the latest stable version:

    node-version-resolver
    # 0.10.22 

    Programmatic Usage

    See test/indexText.coffee

    Caching

    node-version-resolver is designed to work even if nodejs.org is down or slow to respond. If the GET request to nodejs.org/dist/ takes too long to resolve, a local copy of cache/node.html file will be loaded instead. To update the cached file, run:

    npm run updateCache

      ✓ still resolves unstable ranges
      ✓ still resolves versions at a higher patchlevel than the override
