Unable to get nodejs v18

Bug description: The nix package nodejs-18_x is not available.

Expected vs Current Behavior: Since nodejs-18_x is on the nix package registry, this makes me think that it is available but it isn’t.

Right now, I have to do the hacky approach of npm i node@latest and use npx node -v instead. Not ideal.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. create new nix repl
  2. type in node in the shell
  3. observe nodejs-18_x is not on the list of available packages

You can select nodejs-slim.out or nodejs.out to install the lastest version of Node.


thank you!

What’s the difference between nodejs-slim and nodejs though?

nodejs-slim (IIRC) is just the back-end part of Node.js, while nodejs is both front and back-end.
