Can't install canvas

javascript

#1

Hello!
Today, I got a really weird problem with npm. For some reason, I can’t install canvas. It was working correctly, but glitch decided to compile everything again (libsodium, bufferutils, and canvas), and now, I can’t run my application because canvas is a dependency.

This is the error:

node 10.15.0, npm 6.4.1
Installing...

> canvas@2.3.1 install /app/node_modules/canvas

> node-pre-gyp install --fallback-to-build

I updated node-pre-gyp, and… nothing. still can’t install canvas.

(ps: this happened after “Initializing node_modules, hold on”)

Hey @BlueSlimee, we were experiencing some technical difficulties a bit ago that might have caused some of these issues. Can you please to try run enable-pnpm and let us know if that resolves your issue?

@cori The bot is working again, yay!
But know, sodium can’t compile.
