Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. Node.js' package ecosystem, npm, is the largest ecosystem of open source libraries in the world.

This package runs the official Node JS installer, resulting in Node.exe and NPM being installed under Program Files, and added to the SYSTEM PATH environment variable.

Notes

While this package now provides both Current and LTS releases of Node.js, it is still recommended to use the nodejs-lts package if only targeting the latest LTS release is required.

To install Node JS, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install nodejs

To upgrade Node JS, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade nodejs

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
