NodeBB v0.7.3

Moved NodeBB Development
  • Keeping in line with our pledge to release more often, v0.7.3 has shipped today. It contains mostly bugfixes as well as some enhancements towards favicon and improved IE support.

    One big change is the update to the NodeBB Package Manager, which was updated to accommodate changes to the npm api. To combat perceived "brokenness" of plugins, we're introducing the following changes to the package manager:

    • If you are a @3rd-Party-Developers, and your plugin does not have nbbpm.compatibility in its package.json, your plugin will no longer appear in ACP/Plugins
    • The NodeBB package manager updates its index every day at midnight, but you can always PUT if you want nbbpm to refresh its record for your plugin immediately.
    • The ACP/Plugins page now only lists plugin and plugin versions that are compatible with your version of NodeBB.
    • v0.6.x branch users, your copy of NodeBB does not pass the current NodeBB version to nbbpm, so nbbpm won't know what plugin list to send you, as a result, your ACP/Plugins page will be empty. You are advised to upgrade to v0.7.x.
  • I am receiving this error upon updating:

    1. Bringing base dependencies up to date
    2. Updating NodeBB data store schema

    I always seem to get a mini heart attack whenever I run these updates lol

  • Why does this always happen 😭

    Can you move node_modules/ out of the way, run npm install, and then node app --upgrade? That's ./nodebb upgrade in a nutshell (except for the first part).

  • @julian Move out of the way as in delete it? rm -rf node_modules/?

  • Yeah, or just mv node_modules/ node_modules_bak

  • This update went flawlessly for me, Great work.

    I'm sure redis is installed...

    Edit: finally got it to work

  • I'm currently on 0.7.2 and want to upgrade to 0.7.3. Never done this before. After backing up everything, is this what I should do?

    $ cd nodebb
    $ ./nodebb stop
    $ git pull
    $ ./nodebb upgrade
  • @henrywright Ah, good of you to check.

    Seems ./nodebb upgrade isn't working as it should at the moment. Instead, please run npm i && node app --upgrade.

    The problem is being investigated...


  • @julian Thanks for replying so quick. I'll hold off just for the moment until you guys put out the fire 🙂

  • @henrywright Ok, latest commit in v0.7.x branch contains the fix for the broken ./nodebb upgrade call.

    If you want to upgrade, those are the steps, although also cp -r node_modules/ node_modules_bk just to back up the node_modules folder.

    Let me know if it works 😄

  • @julian Upgrade seems to have gone smoothly (including ./nodebb upgrade). Now running 0.7.3. Thanks!

  • Just an FYI:

    I used the same steps as @henrywright a few hours ago and works for me. So @julian if something broke in broke after my last post to the thread like 2hrs ago, You can use that as a time stamp. I was probably one of the first people to upgrade.

  • One thing I did have to do was clear my browsing data because I was getting some 502 Nginx error pages show up. Since clearing all browsing data everything has been fine.

  • Setting homepage as recent renders the following error

    Internal error.
    Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
    Object # has no method 'recent'

    Navigating to URL/recent renders the page just fine.

    Full ST

  • @a_5mith nice catch fixed on master and 0.7.x

  • nbbpm.compatibility is using semver syntax, correct?

  • @BDHarrington7 said:

    nbbpm.compatibility is using semver syntax, correct?

    Yes, a semver range.

    If your plugin works with 0.7.0 and up, use ^0.7.0, you'll have to trust us not to introduce breaking changes in the 0.7.x branch 😉

    If it is compatible with 0.6.1 and up, for example, use >= 0.6.1 ^0.7.0

  • I have always git pull master, and always has this Error : cannot find module .... I did try .\nodebb upgrade, npm install, but nothing works. Even changing branch git checkout v0.7.2 still showing cannot find module.

    The only thing work for me is, to remove all node_modules then install it back. After that, I did npm install redis and connect-redis.

    // remove all node_modules
    rm -rf node_modules/
    // re-install dependencies
    npm install
    // install redis and redis-server
    npm install redis
    npm install connect-redis
