RunKit installs an obsolete version of an NPM package


#1

My notebook starts out with require('puppeteer'). The latest version on NPM/Github is v1.4, but RunKit is only installing v0.13.0.

On the docs/forum, RunKit says that it will require the latest version of any package published to NPM. Clearly this is not the case. A brief search around reveals other people with similar issues over the past 2 years, though I haven’t seen any with this large of a disparity between package versions.

Is there a way to require a specific version of the package? Or trigger a refresh?

That version is so old that I am missing critical features for my notebook. Thanks in advance

Hi joestrouth1,

The problem with puppeteer is that outside of the package itself, it has a number of other (non-npm) dependencies. We’ll look into whether we can get everything else updated this weekend so that we can then support the latest npm package too. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Thanks,

Francisco
