🎉 Node-RED 1.2.2 released

We've published Node-RED 1.2.2.

This fixes the reported issue with the 'Restart Flows' deploy option.

It also improves the 'recovered nodes' handling to cover more scenarios where a node's z property is invalid.

Hi @mspacca, Welcome to the forum. That is an odd error. What version of node.js and npm are you using? Run node -v and npm -v to find out.

Hi, thanks.

Node v15.0.0
Npm v7.0.2

We have not tested Node-RED with Node 15 - and in this case, npm 7, both of which were only released a few days ago. It looks like some change in npm 7 has broken this.

We recommend using Node-RED with an LTS release of node - either 12 or 14 - and the version of npm that comes with them.

Ok,
i will try to downgrade npm and node, i will search command in web...

Thanks a lot, i will send you feedback :+1:

If you want help with that tell us what OS you are running on and how you installed nodejs and node-red. After you downgrade you must re-install node-red itself and also go to your .node-red folder and run
npm rebuild

@knolleary @dceejay

Just a big thumb's up to you and the team, great work.
Don't know if this you full time job or not, but you all appear to be up 24-7.

Keep it going :wink:

I will try to do my bit, but have to share this with my 'real' job

I have installed Dietpi October 2020 (version 6.33), and installed node , npm and node-red with menu software .

Sorry, don't know anything about Dietpi. I am not sure many here do.

OK,
downgraded to v12.19.0 and palette installation work fine..

Thanks

I'm now less certain this is an npm 7 issue.

I've just installed Node 15/npm 7 and run the exact same two npm install commands you shared from the log - and it has worked fine.

I'm not 100% sure where the node-red user directory is on a dietpi install - it isn't one we are involved with. Its normally ~/.node-red - If you can check the log when node-red starts up it will tell you.

You could then try manually installing the s7 node, by changing to that directory and running:

npm install node-red-contrib-s7

If that works, then restart Node-RED to load the new node.

If it fails with the same error as you shared originally, then try deleting the package-lock.json file in that directory and try again.

This is the user directory in dietpi, i have tried launching here the command npm install node-red-contrib-s7 but have same error.
Deleting package-lock.json also not work .

can you share the latest error log from the manual command npm i node-red-contrib-s7 in that directory

I used node-red-contrib-s7comm but issue is the same with node-red-contrib-s7 because this is already installed correctly with versione v12.19.0.

Where is line 30 coming from ? are you using the UI to install or command line ?
(and line 1 and 2 still indicate node 15 and npm 7....)

Sorry i wrong to copy log,

Yes i have reinstalled v15 and v7 to retry this issue... with version v12 work fine..

Hi @mspacca

this is definitely due to a change made in npm 7.

What other modules have you got installed for node-red-dashboard?

For hotly debated reasons, they have chosen that npm 7 will now start to automatically install peerDependencies - where they were previously ignored. This is going to cause endless problems for modules in our ecosystem.

My theory is you have a module installed that lists node-red-dashboard as a peerDependency, but its version string is not valid. This is ignored by npm <7, but now npm 7 will complain.

well the version string should be fine as the peer-dependency will want to be able to express greater than a certain level of peer etc... but yes - is broken as-is.

What is odd here is that the peer dep looks like the dashboard 2.23.4 which is very new to be a dependency of any other node... so it must be coming from either the generated local package.json or package-lock.json.
