now it's fixed... wtf...
nodebb-theme-custom is not in the npm registry
Here's a message from the output of
npm http 404 https://registry.npmjs.org/nodebb-theme-custom npm ERR! 404 'nodebb-theme-custom' is not in the npm registry. npm ERR! 404 You should bug the author to publish it npm ERR! 404 It was specified as a dependency of 'nodebb' npm ERR! 404 npm ERR! 404 Note that you can also install from a npm ERR! 404 tarball, folder, or http url, or git url.
So who's the author of nodebb-theme-custom that we should be bugging?
I don't know... but it sounds like you might have a folder in your
nodebb-theme-custom... so in essence, that'd be you as the author
Gawd, I hope not! How can I bug me?
In all honesty, though -- that's the kind of error you'd get if you "fork" a theme by copying an existing package to another folder... is that what happened? Because it is not published in the registry, npm can't get any info on it, and complains loudly. (I've never heard npm complain softly... )
Most likely. But if that's what it is, I'm not going to bother about it. I don't have time to mess with templates at this time.
Btw, I like the sound notifications. Does it work on mobiles as well?
Here is the documentation from the HTML5 audio library I use:
NOTE: In order to save bandwidth, mobile devices don't load/play sounds without user intervention (no autoplay). iPhone and iPad can only play one sound at a time and don't allow to change the volume dynamically. iPad has some issues with multiple sounds on the same page.
... and I use .wav files, which the Android stock browser may not be so hot at parsing -- but Chrome should be fine.
