Package.json dependency uses git and fails


Hi there,

Trying to setup my first build environment, and running into an issue.
As part of my steps I am installing a global npm package that is required for deployment

- run:
    name: install stencil-cli
    command: "sudo npm install -g @bigcommerce/stencil-cli"

One of the package own dependencies is cloned from a public git repo, and results in an error

npm ERR! code 128
npm ERR! Command failed: git clone --mirror -q git:// /root/.npm/_cacache/tmp/git-clone-7d7263ab/.git
npm ERR! fatal: could not create leading directories of '/root/.npm/_cacache/tmp/git-clone-7d7263ab/.git'

I’ve looked a bit around and the most information I find is related private repos in package.json files.

I’ve read that if you change git:// to https:// in the package.json file it should fix the issue.
But the problem is really that this is not my own package and I have no control over it. Unless I fork it.

Is there something I’m missing, or do I have to contact the package maintainer.

I seem to have found a fix for this.

npm install --prefix=$HOME/.local --global @bigcommerce/stencil-cli
