Came across an issue in the new macos image where the supplied version of node causes some issues running a postinstall script for
fsevents. I wanted to use an older version of node to get around it - but we can’t simply specify a node version in macos images.
By my reckoning, there are two different ways to get around this. Nuke the current install and reinstall, with homebrew
bash-3.2$ brew unlink node bash-3.2$ brew install node@8 bash-3.2$ brew link --overwrite node@8 --force
or install NVM and install the desired node version that way:
- run: name: Setup NVM command: | export NODE_VERSION=$(cat .nvmrc) curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.33.11/install.sh | bash -s -- --no-use echo 'export NVM_DIR=$HOME/.nvm' >> $BASH_ENV echo 'source $NVM_DIR/nvm.sh' >> $BASH_ENV echo 'nvm install v8.14.0' >> $BASH_ENV echo 'nvm alias default v8.14.0' >> $BASH_ENV
Am I going about this the right way? Anything I’ve done that’s either incorrect, or missing the point?
