Description

Node interpreter

In this field, specify the default Node.js interpreter for the current project. CLion automatically uses it every time you select the Project alias from Node Interpreter lists, for example, when creating run/debug configurations.

Select a configured interpreter from the list or click the Browse button and configure a new one in the dialog that opens as described in Configuring a local Node.js interpreter. If you select node, the system Node.js version is used.

Version

This read-only field shows the current version of Node.js.

Package manager

In this field, choose the package manager (npm, Yarn, or pnpm) for the current project.

CLion uses the npm, yarn, and pnpm aliases for the current system paths to these managers. To use a custom installation, click Select, and select the installation folder of the relevant package manager, see Configuring a package manager for a project for details.

By default, CLion suggests npm. However if you open a project with a yarn.lock file and Yarn is installed on your computer, CLion automatically changes the package manager for this project to Yarn.

Accordingly, if you open a project with a pnpm-lock file and pnpm is installed on your computer, CLion automatically changes the package manager for this project to pnpm.

You can also set Yarn 1 or pnpm as default CLion package manager.
