How can I determine which node version Meteor is running on?

Posted October 12, 2015 6k views

On my Droplet I have two nodes:

/usr/local/bin/node (v 0.10.36)
/usr/bin/nodejs (v 0.10.40)

How do I know which one Meteor is using?

Meteor uses its own Nodejs executable that is bundled with it. You can find its path by installing the mnode package and running it:

(sudo) npm install -g mnode

Just run

meteor node --version

in the command line, it will show the node version meteor is running even if you have another version of node installed on your system.
