Introducing Edgio Applications v7Find out what's new.

Install Node.js and npm

Edgio Applications requires Node.js 16.18.0 runtime version.
Although you may use a higher version of Node.js, your app will run using the above version when deployed to Edgio. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you use the Node.js version that corresponds to your Edgio Applications version when developing your web application.

Node.js Installation

The recommended method for installing Node.js is through a version manager like nvm.
  1. Install nvm by running the following command:
    1curl -o- | bash
  2. Verify that you have successfully installed nvm by running the following command:
    1command -v nvm
  3. Once you have successfully installed nvm, install Node.js by running one of the following commands:
    1nvm install 16
  4. Instruct nvm to use the version of Node.js installed in the previous step by running the following command:
    1nvm use 16
