Node Version Manager and failing certificate verification

Node.js

In my current job, we have some kind of network settings ( or better proxy settings ) that from time to time cause problems with certificate verification.

nvm ls-remote

I used nvm to install node and npm on my computer. Few days ago I needed to change my node version to newer one. It is very easy with nvm, you just list all versions and choose which one you want. So I typed…

$ nvm ls-remote

This command should list all available versions of node. But all I got was :

N/A

The problem in this case is with certificate verification. Nvm doesn’t have any option to disable this, but when you read the docs carefully, there is option to set $NVM_NODEJS_ORG_MIRROR variable. So you can do the following :

$ export NVM_NODEJS_ORG_MIRROR=http://nodejs.org/dist

And now everything works, because there is no need to check certificate when it is only http. The nvm ls-remote command outputs :

v0.1.14
v0.1.15
v0.1.16
...
v8.8.1
v8.9.0   (Latest LTS: Carbon)
v9.0.0

And then you can install any version you want :

$ nvm install <version>
