You should create a test environment locally with v1.7.0 and test the plugins with it.
warning about npm v5.7.0
Heh I've been following that 5.7.0 stuff as it happened. Fun stuff.
Thanks for the warning! Fortunately the danger has passed, npm released v5.7.1
I'm not a big fan of npm, even though our entire plugin ecosystem relies on it. If yarn were to start their own ecosystem (
yarn publish!!), I would switch over immediately.
Anyhow. You can use yarn with NodeBB if you'd like. Thanks to @pitaj, you can specify
./nodebbcommands will default to yarn.
