Electron build throws errors


sorry for the “not so specific title” :smiley:
i’m trying to pack my application with electron-build, but it keep me blocking the build, throwing this error:

Error: /usr/local/Cellar/node/7.7.4/bin/node exited with code 1

> ursa@0.9.4 install /Users/gaetano/Desktop/sqlite/node_modules/ursa

i thought it was an error by node-gyp, so i’ve tryied installing int as global package, with no luck.
reading all this weird errors, i saw it has something to do with ursa module, could it be?!

any help is apreciated :smiley:


I’m facing the same issue while trying to run ipfs-desktop. Have you made any progress finding a solution?

I was able to get a different error by following the instructions on this issue but it didn’t completely solve the problem.


As far as i can remember it was an error with sql node specific module…
