Can I update node.js in an app?
I've installed node.bb using Cloudron. A plugin isn't working, and the plugin developer says that I need to udpate node.js.
When I do a
node -vin the console I get version
8.12, which is rather old indeed.
Is there some way to upgrade the version of node.js inside that container?
@Klaus Cloudron apps are deployed as read-only, so the code inside them cannot be changed. This is done for security and update purposes.
But I can update the version to the latest LTS 12.16.1. Would that work?
Note that NodeBB itself only has a requirement of node 8, so it's the plugin developer who has to fix the code
I have updated node to 10.19.0
Great! Finally the emoji plugin works again! Thanks a lot.
