How can the default node version be set using NVM?

(nvm maintainer here)

nvm alias default 6.11.5 if you want it pegged to that specific version.

You can also do nvm alias default 16.

Either way, you’ll want to upgrade to the latest version of nvm (v0.33.11 as of this writing)

$ nvm alias default 16.14.2
# nvm set default node.js version 16.14.2

$ node -v
# v16.14.2
