Node.js Question

How do I uninstall nodejs installed from pkg (Mac OS X)?

I installed NodeJS from pkg file on my Mac. Now I need to uninstall it. Tell me please how to do it.
I tried to remove files from this list:


lsbom -f -l -s -pf /var/db/receipts/org.nodejs.pkg.bom


But node is still on my computer.

Answer

I ran:

lsbom -f -l -s -pf /var/db/receipts/org.nodejs.pkg.bom \
| while read i; do
  sudo rm /usr/local/${i}
done
sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/node \
     /usr/local/lib/node_modules \
     /var/db/receipts/org.nodejs.*

Coded into gist 2697848

Update It seems the receipts .bom file name may have changed so you may need to replace org.nodejs.pkg.bom with org.nodejs.node.pkg.bom in the above. The gist has been updated accordingly.
