    Volta being an hassle-free JavaScript tool manager was very appealing to me.

    Regarding the enforcement of the NPM version: ever heard of https://volta.sh?
  • snm v0.7.0: A completely revamped node version manager
    Like Volta, snm is cross-platform. NVM is not cross-platform. This is an issue for many devs and many teams.
  • Trying to install VSC without nodejs
    I had a similar problem to yours. I solved it by letting packages install what ever nodejs they want and have at it. For my personal Node.js version, I use https://volta.sh to manage multiple versions that can be used by my user. Works lime a charm. I tried to use n but I had conflicts with the eopkg version.

    I've been using volta for JS tooling management (it'd be an nvm competitor). It's pretty lightweight and easy to use.

    Volta - It's kind of like rustup, but for the node ecosystem. (No support for deno yet)

    Volta shows promise and I like that it's fast. But to me it seems like it will be hard to adopt until it supports `.node-version` file (a working standard among node version managers). For example, while some may want to use Volta, others will likely be using `nvm`. And a project's CI likely uses `nvm`. Volta has `volta` property for `package.json` to pin the node and npm version. That's nice and more specific than the `engines` property which can be a range of versions. But it would be better to keep things DRY and leverage the working standard for how node version managers keep track of the node version. (Otherwise a project has to maintain node version information in multiple places.)

    > you will incur into a slightly performance cost because of the bash/zsh/fish shell you need to spawn before running your code

    While Volta does have a shim, it’s written in a sensible systems language (Rust)[0], so it does not spawn a shell. It only determines the correct process and arguments to run and launches it as a subprocess. There will be overhead to read from disk and determine which version of node/npm to run and a syscall to actually launch the subprocess, but that should be very minimal and nowhere near the cost of initializing a shell.

    The result is that Volta feels faster than similar tools that are written in scripting/shell languages. It also enables better Windows support since there’s no reliance on a system having a POSIX shell.

  • How do I check if yarn and npm are installed on the system using node.js?
    reddit.com/r/node | 2021-04-29
    You may want to have a look at https://volta.sh/ It does at least part of what you want: managing your global installations of Node.js, npm or yarn, pinning these tools at a specific version for a specific project, etc.
