I’m using Windows 10 with WSL2 (Debian) and I’m unable to compile n8n for development.
Anyone using that platform?
Can you please share what errors you get?
Also, this post is similar to yours: N8n on WLS2 data return issues
thank you for your reply.
I’m trying to run local development version. So I:
- clone repo
lerna bootstrap --hoist
Then got massive error list, but I’m not able to diagnose.
If you would like, please take a look at the log file attached.
I think the problem is with node-sass. Did you try running
npm rebuild node-sass? If that doesn’t work you can also try
git clean -f -X -d && npm run bootstrap && npm run build from root n8n dir. This command will remove everything from the repo and build the project
Unfortunatelly, neither option helps
Still the same errors.
What Node.js version do you use? If it is anything except v14 you should try with that one. Also important to use npm version 6 (version 7 messes stuff up at least on Linux very bad).
Looks like the node.js version was the blocker!
I was using v16.x, now switched to v14.17.0 and it works!
btw: the npm version is 6.14.13
Ah glad to hear that you got it working!
