    Thanks for example. Peeking a bit under the hood, it appears to be due to transitive dependencies referencing github urls (and transient ones at that) instead of semver, which admittedly is neither standard nor good practice...

    FWIW, simply removing `"grunt-contrib-jshint": "~0.4.3",` from package.json and related jshint-related code from Gruntfile was sufficient to get `npm install` to complete successfully. The debugging just took me a few minutes grepping package-lock.json for the 404 URL in question (https://github.com/ariya/esprima/tarball/master) and tracing that back to a top-level dependency via recursively grepping for dependent packages. I imagine that upgrading relevant dependencies might also do the trick, seeing as jshint no longer depends on esprima[0].

    I'm not sure how representative this particular case is to the sort of issues you run into, but I'll tell that reproducibility issues can get a lot worse in ways that committing deps doesn't help (for example, issues like this one[1] are nasty to narrow down).

    But assuming that installation in your link just happens to have a simple fix and that others are not as forgiving, how is committing node_modules supposed to help here if you're saying you can't even get it to a working state in the first place? DO you own the repo in order to be able to make the change? Or are you mostly just saying that hindsight is 20-20?

  • Script-loading script fails on a particular script
    1 project | reddit.com/r/learnjavascript | 17 Aug 2021
    As expected, that code is never executed (neither memsq nor cachedsq exist), so as you point out, the script is not being loaded. I ran both scripts through JSHint, but only got warnings about using the ES6 flag in the site (which I don't know how to do); no errors. The unloaded script works quite well on Node, and when pasting it directly into the console, as I already mentioned, so this script has no errors that prevents it from running. :/

    As you can imagine, the language changed a lot over time, and not all its parts are good. Using a linter will help us stay away from the bad parts of JavaScript. In my experience, the ESlint and JSHint linters integrate very well into the CI environment. Any of these can be installed with npm install --save-dev.
