Volta—simple and fast node version manager

Maciej Modzelewski, nodetypescriptjavascript

Volta is a small tool that helps you manage multiple versions of node and package managers like npm or yarn.

It is especially useful when you work on multiple projects—you can update your environments independently.

Installing a new node version with Volta is as easy as:

volta install node@16

That will set up node 16 as a default version.

If you want to have a different version for some project, just use:

volta pin node@14

It will create an entry in your package.json file, saving the version of node.

And the best thing of Volta—it's superfast!

If you would like to get started with Volta, head over to Volta—Getting Started.

Happy coding! 😀
