Deploying Node app fails with package-lock.json but works with yarn.lock
When I try deploying my node.js app with a package-lock.json file, it fails with the error:
flow-library | 09:58:09 Installing node_modules using npm flow-library | 09:58:12 npm ERR! cipm can only install packages with an existing package-lock.json or npm-shrinkwrap.json with lockfileVersion >= 1. Run an install with npm@5 or later to generate it, then try again. flow-library | 09:58:12 flow-library | 09:58:12 npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in: flow-library | 09:58:12 npm ERR! /home/apps/.npm/_logs/2020-11-12T09_58_12_025Z-debug.log
When I switch over to included a
yarn.lock file - the deploy works. I would prefer to stick with
npm as that’s what we’re using through-out our project.
Any ideas when
cipm complains about the lack of
package-lock.json when it definitely exists?
