Downgrade Node.js to a Specific Version Using Homebrew

It’s a pain in the ass to have to look this up every time I do this. So here it goes:

Install Homebrew versions:

$ brew tap homebrew/versions

Look for the package you need:

$ brew search node

That is going to return a list of packages with keywords matching “node”

$ leafnode node node010 node04 node06 node08 nodebrew nodenv

Install the package with the version you need:

$ brew install node010


$ brew link --overwrite node010
