What does this message mean?

While trying to work out why my machine is now running 100% all the time, I was removing some nodes.

I got this message after an uninstall:

node-red-contrib-ui-led@0.3.1 requires a peer of node-red-dashboard@2.14.x but none is installed. You must install peer dependencies yourself.

I have 2.19.2 installed with 2.19.3 ready to be installed.

So if I have 2.19.x to me that is greater than 2.14.x


Does this message remain after your restart Node-RED ?

(Work in progress.)

The poor machine is running 100% all the time. (With NR running)

It didn't used to. It pulsed from 30% to 100% every 20 seconds (as per time schedule and tasks.)

I am trying to get it sorted out and it takes about 15 minutes to update/install or remove a node.

The command was done from a CLI / Terminal so I don't know how to answer that.

I hate that npm seems to get that message wrong more often than not.

All it means is that the led node requires dashboard to be installed. Once upon a time, npm would have done it for you had you forgotten but now it doesn't.

That's fine but it often seems to be unable to detect that the dependency is in fact installed.

I just needed to check.

I guess I shall just ignore it as the dashboard is installed.

So that is more a NPM problem than the node?

Not a node problem at all.
