This package uses an older NPM which is no longer offered as a standalone package separately from NodeJS. It is recommended that you uninstall this package and the package nodejs.commandline in favor of nodejs.install (which nodejs package now points to).

Use nodejs.install instead (Node JS package (nodejs) now points to nodejs.install).


Node JS - Evented I/O for v8 JavaScript. Node's goal is to provide an easy way to build scalable network programs.

This package simply copies Node.exe to a subfolder within the Chocolatey folder. This now takes a dependency on the npm package, so NPM will be installed as well.

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.
