How to check the node version in your System

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to check the node.js version which is currently installed in your system.

Using the terminal

Inside the terminal, we can check the node version by running the node --version command or node -v.

node --version

Output:

v12.14.1

or

➜ node -v

v12.14.1

This above commands will work on both mac and windows based operating systems.

Accessing the node version programmatically

If you want to programmatically access the node version inside an app, you get it by using the process.version property.

app.js
const nodeVersion = process.version;

console.log(nodeVersion); // 'v12.14.1'

It returns the node version number in a string format.
