run library that requires build-essential on serverless function

hello friends

I am trying to load this library into a serverless function, but am running into this error:

“message”:“Cannot find module ‘/tmp/Uvkambof/node_modules/tulind/lib/binding/Release/node-v83-linux-x64/tulind.node’ Require stack: - /tmp/Uvkambof/node_modules/tulind/index.js - /tmp/Uvkambof/lib/bots/bless3d.js - /tmp/Uvkambof/index.js”

My best guest is that the OS these functions are running on is not supported by the library, is there any way around this?

Hi there,

Can you try deploying the project, using “remote-build” so that the build and runtime environments match:

doctl serverless deploy your-function-name-here --remote-build

Otherwise, if you are on a Mac for example, and you run the install locally, the release field will be at ./node_modules/tulind/lib/binding/Release/node-v93-darwin-arm64/tulind.node but on a Linux platform the release files are at node_modules/tulind/lib/binding/Release/node-v83-linux-x64/tulind.node.

Let me know how it goes!
