Install Node.js and npm

Edgio only supports Node.js version 14
Current recommended development version is Node.js v14

Node version managers

If you are using multiple versions of Node.js consider installing a Node version manager like nvm or n.
Quick node install with nvm or n
1# nvm
2nvm install 14
3# n
4n install 14

Package managers

npm is a package manager integrated into Node.
yarn is another very popular package manager.

Node.js installation

Download and install it from the official Node.js v14.x downloads page. Select the download that matches your operating system and run the installer. Note that the installer for Node.js will also install npm.


For mac users, brew install node is a quick way to get the latest node. You can then use nvm or n to manage versions.

Production version

Note that while you can use any version of Node.js >= 14 locally, your app will run in Node 14 when deployed to the Edgio cloud.
Therefore we highly suggest using Node 14 for all development.
