    The other day at work, I was thrown into the world of asdf

  • GitHub repo nvm for Windows

    A node.js version management utility for Windows. Ironically written in Go.

    prev to that it was nvm-windows. It's not using node to manage node runtimes, it's an executable written in go.

    I've been using fnm. It's fast and works.

    nvs has been working pretty flawlessly for me.
