Getting Discord Node Refactored

I need to get an installation of n8n with discord-node-refactored. The pull request is Pull #1513 and the Branch is discord-node-refactored. I have tried everything I can google. Looking for some instructions or a guide… :sweat_smile: sorry for such a basic issue, I’m new to github and npm…

Hey @cixastra!

Welcome to the community :sparkling_heart:

Here are the steps that might be helpful:

  1. Clone the repo using git clone https://github.com/n8n-io/n8n.git
  2. Go to the project directory using cd n8n
  3. Add the repo as the origin git remote add origin https://github.com/n8n-io/n8n.git
  4. Create a new branch git checkout -b discord-node-refactored origin/discord-node-refactored

You can then install the packages, build n8n, and run it!

Thank you so much! I was able to get to building n8n, then I encountered this error.

I apologize for the spamm…

It seems like you use npm version 7. That version has a known problem with resolving packages. Downgrade to npm version 6 and it should work fine.

Or set:

npm config set legacy-peer-deps true

Hey!

Are you using Node.js v12.x? The required version for Node.js is v14 and for npm is v6. With these versions you will be able to solve the issues :slight_smile:

I got more errors after switching from node 12 during lerna to v14 in building

:sob: I wish there was a tutorial video somewhere for building n8n.

Make you sure you are in n8n’s root directly and do the following:

rm packages/*/package-lock.json package-lock.json

npm run clean:dist && rm -rf node_modules && lerna bootstrap --hoist && npm run build
