Difficulty launching Turborepo on the app platform

Has anyone launched Turborepo on the app platform? I’ve tried everything. Docker, yarn workspaces, all sorts of configurations. I just can’t seem to get it working.

In terms of providing errors, I’ve taken so many different kinds of paths and encountered so many roadblocks that it’s too hard to name just one.

Does anyone have a resource or repo that they could point me to? I appreciate any help!

I also face lot of similar problems, with 2 additional here:

  • While Turborepo and Next.js are using (or at least, encourage people) using node 18, DO App node buildpack still use node 16.
  • After setting up everything in pnpm, I found out the buildpack only support npm or yarn. :P

Really appreciate if someone can help.

Hi there,

I’ve not tried out Turborepo myself, but if you have an example project that you are trying to deploy, feel free to share it here and I will be happy to test this out on my end and try to investigate if the deployment is indeed doable.
