I’ve recently come on to a project, and went to install all the packages. The project’s README said to use node v0.12.5. Wow. Outdated. I installed and used that version with NVM, and ran
npm install. Nothing works. All the packages throw errors that they need newer things. Yeah, no kidding!
So I bump to Node v4. Same thing. Node v5. Same thing. Node v6 works, but the
package-lock.json is showing lots of downgrades.
The only thing that seems to be missing are the versions of node and npm that were used to install and thus create the
package-lock.json. Unless I’m missing something - is there some way to find that information?
