Angular2... 4... 5... can't get it to work!



I’ve got a very simple Angular app I’m trying to set up a basic CI flow for but I can’t even get past the NPM install step. It appears as if I can’t get a hold of a docker image with Node > 4.6.x. Anyways, here’s the NPM install console readout

npm install

node-sass4.6.0 install /home/ubuntu/project-nest-webapp/node_modules/angular/cli/node_modules/node-sass
node scripts/install.js

And here’s my yaml file

version: 2
working_directory: ~/project-nest
- image: circleci/node:6-browsers
- checkout
- run:
name: update-npm
command: sudo npm install -g npm@latest

- run:

- ./node_modules
- run:

command: xvfb-run -a npm run test – --single-run --no-progress --browser=ChromeNoSandbox

Any pointers would be awesome!


Could you use the basic Docker image and install the components/versions that you need manually?


Did this get resolved? I’ve encountered a simple issue. Driving me nuts!

npm ERR! peerinvalid The package @angular/common@5.1.2 does not satisfy its siblings’ peerDependencies requirements!


If I remember correctly, I used a blank image and manually installed all
the dependencies on the CI flow. It sucks, but it works.


I turned to VSTS (Visual Studio Team Services) in the end. Found it easier
to use and it works without any hacks or workarounds.



We’re using the Angular CLI and I think we had this issue with node-sass. We run npm rebuild node-sass as part of the sequence in our config file

      - checkout

      - run:
          name: versions
          command: |
            node --version
            npm --version
            yarn --version

#      Download and cache dependencies
      - restore_cache:
          key: dependency-cache-{{ checksum "yarn.lock" }}

      - run:
          name: yarn-install
          command: yarn --no-progress --pure-lockfile

      - save_cache:
          key: dependency-cache-{{ checksum "yarn.lock" }}
            - ~/.cache/yarn
            - ./node_modules

      - run:
          name: rebuild node-sass
          command: npm rebuild node-sass

Hope this helps
