I would like to ask you for an assistance, because seems that we have some fundamental issues with “js-ipfs api” and issues seems to be not in our code.
- First issue
npm install ipfs -g
We tried to install js-ipfs on Ubuntu, Debian, Centos (latest on Digitalocean) through npm (also the latest, latest node…).
But we got:
npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE
npm ERR! errno 2
npm ERR! email@example.com install:
node build.js > index.browser.js
npm ERR! Exit status 2
npm ERR! Failed at the firstname.lastname@example.org install script.
npm ERR! This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above.
and “command jsipfs not working (command not found).”
So my first question is: “does this module need any other dependencies”, or what can be wrong? We tested latest Ubuntu, Debian, Centos, latest npm/node.
“We were not able to make it work on any system.”
- Second issue (ipfs-http-client)
According to this: ipfs-http-client - npm
we installed module ipfs-http-client
Module was installed and is located in the /node_modules.
but we are unable to load this module into the project /app.js by “require(‘ipfs-http-client’).”
“Module can not be found.” Of course, the module is located in the /node_modules and of course all other modules works fine. Just this one does not…
We tried to set abs path: require(’/path to dir/node_modules/ipfs-http-client’)…but also does not work
Do you have any idea what can be wrong?
