I am trying to install NVM as per these instructions
I typed in this command in terminal:
$ curl https://raw.github.com/creationix/nvm/master/install.sh | sh
After running the install, I restart the terminal and attempt to install Node.js with this command:
$ nvm install 0.8
but I get the response:
-bash: nvm: command not found
I’m not sure what I am doing wrong here.
I’ve been looking around for solutions from other posts and forums. I found another solution using
$ git clone git://github.com/creationix/nvm.git ~/.nvm
but this times out every time I attempt that. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
.profile file. You most likely had a problem during the installation.
You should have the following at the end of one of those files.
[[ -s $HOME/.nvm/nvm.sh ]] && . $HOME/.nvm/nvm.sh # This loads NVM
. $HOME/.nvm/nvm.sh is the same as
See: Sourcing a File
You can also check to see if you have a
ls -a | grep .nvm
If you’re missing that folder then the installation failed to run the git command. This could be due to being behind a proxy. Try running the following instead.
git clone http://github.com/creationix/nvm.git .nvm
