Remove node.js pkg and install it from homebrew

Standard

I want to move my software dependencies as much as i can to homebrew, the package manager for OSX.

The default node.js installation is a .pkg OSX package and i had installed it like so a couple of months ago.

To remove the files installed by this package you can use this github gist:

Then do a simple brew install node will enough to install it and if there is a new version available you will find it in the next brew update and you can update it with brew upgrade node
