Nvm is for sure a cool tool, the version switching functionality is great.

I’ve skimmed through docs but couldn’t find this - Does nvm have a feature to install and compile node from source?

I'm not familiar with such feature. Why would you need it?

Compiling from source (as opposed to using pre-compiled binaries) is considered by some to be more secure.
