Problems when deploying to Now (to a default URL, no custom domain)

I want to deploy a demo site to one of the temporary URL’s assigned automatically by Zeit

By default, all deployments are assigned a .now.sh suffixed domain.

So, to do that, I’ve created the following now.json

{
  "version": 2,
  "builds": [
    {
      "src": "package.json",
      "use": "@frontity/now"
    }
  ]
}

And then:

  1. Logged into now by doing β†’ npx now login
  2. Deployed to now by doing β†’ npx now --target production

I’m getting this error

Error! Build failed

Here’s the full log

As it seems the build process in now involves the use of yarn, maybe this is an issue related to

It’s not related because that yarn problem only happens in development.


It seems like the build is failing. Try running npx frontity dev -p locally to see if it works in your computer.

npx frontity dev -p works fine. I get my site served at http://localhost:3000

@luisherranz BTW the project I’m trying to deploy in a temporary URL is this one β†’ https://github.com/frontity-juanmaguitar/demo-frontity-env-variables-server

In case, you want to clone it and try what I’m doing in your machine

Doing so :+1:

I have made a PR: https://github.com/frontity-juanmaguitar/demo-frontity-env-variables-server/pull/1

It looks like the dotenv dependency was missing on your package-lock.json.

Sometimes it’s a good practice to remove the node_modules folder and package-lock.json file to start over because they can get out of sync when you move things around.

EDIT: We also need better error handling in both our npx frontity build command and @frontity/now-builder builder.

πŸ“  Project settings are not applied because `builds` are used.

But… how did you get to that problem?

Sometimes it’s a good practice to remove the node_modules folder and package-lock.json file to start over because they can get out of sync when you move things around.

Couldn’t this be handled by the build process?

I installed your project, run npm i and npx frontity dev and I got an error because dotenv was missing.

You should be able to reproduce the error if you delete node_modules and do npm i again because it won’t install that package.

I don’t think so. That would require to delete the node_modules and package.json folder and that’s not something you may want to do because… well, it’s not the way npm works :confused:

EDIT: Maybe we can add better error handling and, if we are able to detect these type of problems, suggest the solution in the command line itself.
