How to solve the “Heap out of memory” error in JavaScript

The fastest way of solving this issue is by increasing the memory limit of Node. Starting from Node.js v8, you can set the limit in MB with the --max-old-space-size flag like this:

node --max-old-space-size=4096 index.js

4096 translates to 4 GB of memory. You can set the limit to whatever you like, but make sure you don’t use all the available memory, or otherwise, your system might crash.

As an alternative to this, you can also set the flag in an environment variable like this:

NODE_OPTIONS="--max-old-space-size=4096" node index.js

Change the Node.js memory limits of your environment

If you want to change the memory limits of Node.js for your entire environment, you need to set the following variable in your environment’s configuration file. (.bashrc, .bash_profile, sometimes .zshrc, etc.)

Add this line to your configuration file:


export NODE_OPTIONS=--max_old_space_size=4096

“npm install” heap out of memory

If you run into this issue when installing a package with npm or yarn, you can bypass the memory limit temporarily by installing the package as follows:

node --max-old-space-size=4096 $(which npm) install -g nextawesomelib

JavaScript language was invented by Brendan Eich in 1995. JavaScript is inspired by Java Programming Language. The first name of JavaScript was Mocha which was named by Marc Andreessen, Marc Andreessen is the founder of Netscape and in the same year Mocha was renamed LiveScript, and later in December 1995, it was renamed JavaScript which is still in trend.

To run the code of JavaScript, we have to enable JavaScript of Web Browser. But some web browsers already have JavaScript enabled.

JavaScript Memory Management System

The main goal of this article is to help to readers to understand how memory management system performs in JavaScript.

I will use a shorthand such as GC which means Garbage Collection. When the browsers use Javascript, they need any memory location to store objects, functions, and all other things. Let’s deep in dive that how things going to work in GC.

Image for post

The JavaScript Engine’s Garbage collector’ looks out for objects which are unreachable and also removed from the memory.

So I will share an example below and show you steps that will be needed to work with GC.

var number = 50;                // allocates memory for a number

var string = 'textual data';  // allocates memory for a string
var object = {x: 10};         // allocates memory for an object
var x= [10, null, 'abra'];     // allocates memory for the array
function f(x) {               // allocates memory for a function
return x * 2;

The example shows how JavaScript allocates memory for the variables when they declare. But when the memory is no longer needed, the allocated memory will be released. GC finds the memory no longer used by the application and releases it. But the main question is that how GC finds the memory no longer used?

The basic algorithm for doing that is called “mark-and-sweep”.
