I’m trying to run a Node.js app with private packages. These packages are hosted on GitHub packages. I created a personal access token and added a .npmrc file to my repository.
The token is provided my an environment variable.
When building the app on App Platform, I get this error:
backend | 12:18:10 Installing node_modules using yarn backend | 12:18:11 yarn install v1.22.10 backend | 12:18:11 [1/4] Resolving packages... backend | 12:18:11 error Couldn't find package "@my-org/my-package" on the "npm" registry. backend | 12:18:11 info Visit https://yarnpkg.com/en/docs/cli/install for documentation about this command. backend | 12:18:11 unable to invoke layer creator backend | 12:18:11 installing node_modules: exit status 1 backend | 12:18:11 ERROR: failed to build: exit status 1 backend | 12:18:11 ! Build failed (exit code 7)
Does App Platform not read the .npmrc file? Also why is it using yarn for installing the dependencies? I specifically avoided yarn because of problems with private GitHub packages.
