Let’s install the latest from the 9 series:
nvm install 9 node -v #v9.8.0 npm -v #5.6.0
Next, add the Yarn package manager globally:
npm install -g yarn
We need to add Yarn’s binary to our
echo 'export PATH=$PATH:~/.yarn/bin' >> ~/.bashrc
- Install Node.js using Snap:
Now run the following to install Snap packages:
sudo pacman -S snapd sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket sudo ln -s /var/lib/snapd/snap /snap
To install Node.js, simply use the following command:
sudo snap install node --classic
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Node.js. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the latest version of Node.js on the Manjaro system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official Node.js website.
