Node Version 18/17

Hi, i currently using node 18, and in the website says i need to user node version 16 or 14 and i personally want to used it with the new version, are they going to update it?

Hi @GPeaky, thanks for your question.

By chance, have you tried to use Node 18 and Redwood? I imagine it works out of the box (edit: looks like it does, I just used node@18.3.0 locally and had no problem running my Redwood app).

In terms of 17, we generally skip odd # releases for Node as they are not the long term service ones.

If it does work I will work with the team to update the documentation, or better yet you can contribute to it yourself over at: redwood/prerequisites.md at main · redwoodjs/redwood · GitHub

Please also see: redwood/CONTRIBUTING.md at main · redwoodjs/redwood · GitHub if this is something you’re interested in.
