I’m using n8n destkop on windows.
It works great.
I would need cheerio in the function to do what I need to.
I saw that you can activate node function with environment variables:
I tried to add an env variable in windows.
And then to use cheerio and I get “ERROR: cheerio is not defined”
How do you do it in windows?
Hi @Sandoche, you can configure environment variables in the
n8n-desktop.env file inside the
.n8n folder of your home directory (so
C:\Users\Sandoche\.n8n\n8n-desktop.env if your Windows username would be Sandoche).
NODE_FUNCTION_ALLOW_EXTERNAL=* should allow you to require cheerio in the Function node.
Awesome it works!
Thanks a lot!
FYI, the API docs (and my current issue seems to prove) that you need to BE SPECIFIC when specifying
NODE_FUNCTION_ALLOW_EXTERNAL, so =* will not work as expected.
