Use nvm in GitHub actions when building a Node.js project

Stanislav KhromovStanislav Khromov

Node Version Managernvm comes preinstalled on most of the Ubuntu images GitHub provides, including ubuntu-latest. (See here for more details). You don’t need any additional actions to use it.

Here is a very basic configuration that will invoke nvm and build your project with the correct Node version. Note that you have to have a .nvmrc file in your project root for this to work.

name: Build and Deploy
      - master

    name: Build
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
      - name: Checkout Repo
        uses: actions/checkout@master
      - name: Set the correct Node version using nvm
        shell: bash -l {0} 
        run: nvm install
      - name: Install Dependencies
        run: npm install
      - name: Build
        run: npm run build
        # Here you would add your other steps, such as deploying the code, building an artifact, etc.
