    Node Version Manager - POSIX-compliant bash script to manage multiple active node.js versions

    Project mention: Another choice of Flutter Version Manager: fvm in shell | | 2022-11-29

    I'm a frontend developer and recently have some work to do with Flutter, need to switch Flutter version in different projects. For Nodejs we have nvm to manage and switch node version. I've tried the dart-version fvm, but it does not work similar to nvm. So I released a shell-version fvm. Anyone who needs to work with multi flutter version and run into problems with dart-version fvm can have try with this.
