Node.js Question

nvm keeps "forgetting" node in new terminal session

Upon using a new terminal session in OS X,
nvm
forgets the node version and defaults to nothing:



$ nvm ls
:

.nvm
v0.11.12
v0.11.13


I have to keep hitting
nvm use v.0.11.13
in every session:

.nvm
v0.11.12
-> v0.11.13


I've tried both the
brew
install, as well as the official installation script.

My
.profile
for the brew version:

#nvm
export NVM_DIR=~/.nvm
source $(brew --prefix nvm)/nvm.sh


And for the install.sh script:

$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.10.0/install.sh | bash


#nvm
export NVM_DIR="/Users/farhad/.nvm"
[ -s "$NVM_DIR/nvm.sh" ] && . "$NVM_DIR/nvm.sh" # This loads nvm


Any clue to what I'm doing wrong?


Answer

Try nvm alias default. For example:

$ nvm alias default 0.12.7

This sets the default node version in your shell. Then verify that the change persists by closing the shell window, opening a new one, then: node --version
