How to fix the nvm command not found Issue

In this tutorial, we will learn how to solve the nvm command not found issue.

When you install an nvm (node version manager) using the installation script, if you try to use the nvm command in your terminal it shows the following issue.

➜  ~ nvm --version

zsh: command not found: nvm

To solve the command not found issue, you need to add the following code to your bash file (~/.bashrc) or zsh file (~/.zshrc) and restart your terminal.

export NVM_DIR="$HOME/.nvm"
[ -s "$NVM_DIR/nvm.sh" ] && \. "$NVM_DIR/nvm.sh"  # This loads nvm
[ -s "$NVM_DIR/bash_completion" ] && \. "$NVM_DIR/bash_completion"  # This loads nvm bash_completion

To open the bash file in vscode use:

code ~/.bashrc

To open the zsh file in vscode use:

code ~/.zshrc
