Regarding what version of Node JS to use, the best way to decide is to directly reference the releases page:


  • Use a version that is in Maintenance LTS or Active LTS
  • Don’t use odd numbered releases in production (13, 15, etc.). Support for those only lasts for six months.
  • Maintenance for any given LTS version is a mere 30 months, so it makes sense to move onto the latest LTS as soon as you can.
