Node.js version usage in the Forest Admin server

I noticed that the default generated docker file contains node version 10 version, it’s an old one and doesn’t support tons of modern capabilities.

Is there any technical reason to keep particularly the 10’s version of node, or I can simply update the Docker file and use the latest one in my build?

Hi @louis,

Node versions system is explained here.
As node say: “Production applications should only use Active LTS or Maintenance LTS releases.”
We have to run on LTS versions, at least v12 (but ends in April 2022), 14 or 16.
