Node.js Versions We Run

Back To Blog

We did a small survey on the Node.js versions usage on our system.

At opeNode, we do not restrict the Node.js version you can use. We look at the package.json (in engines.node), and if a version is specified, that's the version which will be used/installed in your instance. Therefore, versions become available as users request them dynamically.

See below the current usage (as of today):

Version Percentage Usage (%)
10.0.0 28.57142857142857
9.4.0 17.24137931034483
9.8.0 15.763546798029557
10.1.0 13.30049261083744
9.7.1 15.270935960591133
9.5.0 2.4630541871921183
7.6.0 2.4630541871921183
9.3.0 0.9852216748768473
8.9.4 0.49261083743842365

8.10.0 0.49261083743842365
8.9.0 0.49261083743842365
8.3.0 0.49261083743842365
9.9.0 0.49261083743842365
8.9.3 0.49261083743842365

When you do not specify a required Node.js version, the latest available version will be used when you deploy. That's still great, to upgrade your Node.js version, you just need to redeploy.
