iojs is not going to be a flop. Look at the current development rate, I would say
iojs would replace
nodejs eventually if Joyent not doing anything to turn it around.
I prefer to install
nvm instead of the default installer package on iojs’s homepage since it allows me to switch between node version with a single command.
As of current,
iojs is basically a dropin replacement for
nodejs so you don’t have to worry much.
nvm - a node version manager with
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.23.2/install.sh | bash
nvm install iojs
Add these lines to your
export NVM_DIR=~/.nvm source $(brew --prefix nvm)/nvm.sh%
iosjs as the default node version
nvm alias default iojs
You can check again with
which node to see which version of node is using.
