Hi,

this is a known issue: https://github.com/node-red/node-red/issues/1629

Quick fix is to edit package.json and remove chromedriver from the devDependencies section.

JFI I’ve just installed it on my Win10 machine so that is good enough for me to just play with source code - so I don’t actually need to install from source on my Pi anymore

I tried this some months ago and you have to compile node-sass from source, which takes hours on the pi....

yeah - running full dev mode on a Pi is not for the time-pressured
