I have been using Theia for a while as my daily development ide. I use the browser version in the master repository. Because my life is so boring I run the latest version of Theia to add a little risk and excitement. I update every time a new release is created. This has only been a problem the one time back when the main branch was deleting changes when changes were staged using git.
So I have also been using version 19 of node. This was not a problem as the version of node was > 14.xxx.xxx . Now Theia requires >= 16.14 < 17. I installed the current version of 16 and built and ran theia. Not a big deal, but was wondering if there was a specific reason to limit to 16? I also modified the package.json to allow for 19 and built and ran of course did not test much of anything but it did work and I have been running like this with previous versions for a while. Obviously running it at my own risk on version 19.
I really enjoy using Theia. Thanks so much for creating such a great product.
could be. I am not using electron just the browser version. I run it as a shortcut with open as a window so no browser menu or tabs etc.
The --ignore-engines seem to require you to add it to any subsequent yarn calls within the packages.json. I added it the base and was still getting errors. Also tried
yarn global add --ignore-engines so finally just added sed -i “s/<17/<20/” ./package.json to my script. Really no noticeable difference running in 16 vs 19.
