NPM peerDependencies issue

I recently came across an npm error and wanted to share it with you so you will know what to do in case that it happens to you. The issue will only happen if your npm is version 7 or more.

when I tried to do npm install I received this error:

nothing I tried to do to fix this worked until I run the command like this:
npm i --legacy-peer-deps

The reason for this is probably that since NPM v7 now installs peerDependencies by default.

hope this is helpful.


it would be great also to have the error in text version, so google will index that but thanks for sharing! I’m sure I’ll hit this in future :slight_smile:
