How to fix node version in a Web-App

How we can fix not version so that developer, CI/CD, production, everybody uses the same node version?

Step 1 — Add nodeVersionLock in package.json

we need to add preinstall and prestart scripts too.

Step 2 — Throw errors when undesired node-version found.

Step 3— AutoUpdate of Dockerfile & GitbHub YML

This step is optional and custom. it depends on your setup.

This is an example of my setup where I am calling the above script using pre-commit hooks.

So, we don’t need to update node-version on Docker or any kind of CI/CD yml files.

So, Next time, whenever you want to upgrade the node version, just update the nodeVersionLock field in package JSON and rest everything will be taken care of
