Issues with running the Electron client


#1

I followed the build instructions. Building the tools and the Electron application using npm install worked fine.

However, I’ve received an error when running yarn dist, but as far as I know this is not necessary for developing, but only to create a package. I will add the error here as well, although it’s just for completeness and should not disract from the real problem. (I won’t complain though, if somebody is able to help with the yarn issue either.)

I found a related topic, but the proposed solution npm run pack did not work either.

yarn dist is actually necessary to build the binary packages (such as SQLite) for use with Electron, so probably that’s what would be building “electron-v1.8-darwin-x64”.

What was the error when you ran yarn dist?


#3

All the errors and logs are in my original post. Click on the lines with the triangle.


#4

Thanks, I missed that. The SQLite module has always been very tricky to get working. I think they provide pre-compiled binary but maybe not for all versions, and sometimes they provide them but then access is denied (like for this one). I will report this on their forum to see if they have a solution.


#5

Ah, ok. You know, when I was looking at the error message, I thought that this is probably something the guys have to fix upstream. But maybe there’s a workaround to specify which URLs to try. Who knows.

Anyhow, let’s see how it goes.

Hello

Are there any news on this? I am not able to build the app with the instructions on BUILD.md.

#7

I have reported the issue on the node-sqlite3 GitHub page but not sure if this is actually an issue with their package.

For example, Travis can build the package following these instructions and I’ve never had an issue too so it could be a system issue or maybe some problem with software versions that don’t match.

I wonder if it’s some issue with node-gyp. What if you run npm -g i node-gyp and then try to run yarn dist again?


#8

Unfortunately this didn’t help. Here’s the output of yarn dist:

How about if you try to set the libtool path as described there? https://stackoverflow.com/a/38552393/561309


#10

Great, this worked. Now I have to write a wrapper for yarn, because I won’t set this globally.

Thanks again.


#11

I still do not know however, why npm install named the directory on my machine ElectronClient/app/node_modules/sqlite3/lib/binding/node-v57-darwin-x64 and not ElectronClient/app/node_modules/sqlite3/lib/binding/electron-v1.8-darwin-x64.

That’s the reason for the error when running ./run.sh.

Creating a sym link fixes the error, but this is just a workaround. It would be nice to solve the root cause.


#12

It seems that someone had a similar problem when installing joplin via brew.
This really is puzzling.
