Hey @killerbswarm our apologies for the inconvenience!

This was probably due to a recent deploy on our side which updated the default node version and our install script isn’t checking for the change. If you explicitly set the node version in your package.json file you should be all set.

If you’d like us to take a look please provide your project name (if you’re worried about keeping it private you can email to

sent an email, thanks!

Received, and I updated your package.json to downgrade the node version back to version 8.x by adding

"engines": {
  "node": "8.x"

to the end.

Once again sorry for the inconvenience and let us know if you run into any other problems.

Happy Glitching!

Thanks. It’s working now
