Node.js containers on Circle 2.0 seem to default to v4.2.6 regardless of tag

nodejs
docker

I was able to setup testing node.js on Circle 2.0 for our server-side projects, but when trying to run tests for our React.js app I’m getting the following error:

npm WARN package.json betterpt-dashboard@0.0.3 No license field.

npm install returned exit code 1

Action failed: npm install

I’m using the circleci/node:latest container.

EDIT: I discovered that the issue is that regardless of which node.js container I use, it is always building the project with node v4.26 which is not compatible with one of the packages the project is using.

Did you find a solution?

That was what I figured out too… For some reason, it defaults to use node 4.x when using the native docker node image too ¯_(ツ)_/¯

nvm… Turns out I had named the folder .circle instead of .circleci, so it never found the circle configuration :smiley:
