Managing and switching node versions with nvm

If you’re working on multiple projects with different node versions, switching versions can get tricky. nvm is a version manager for node that allows you to easily switch between versions. For example, I have a later non-LTS version installed, but to avoid issues like this one that I run into with later versions:

opensslErrorStack: [ 'error:03000086:digital envelope routines::initialization error' ],
  library: 'digital envelope routines',
  reason: 'unsupported',

… I need to switch back to the current LTS version to avoid this error. This is easy with:

nvm use --lts
