Npm loop error on local host

Hello, @Marvelxy I followed the steps to set up my local dev environment and when after successfully installing dependencies. Running “npm run start” gets stuck in a loop of “certificate has expired” errors"
Find attached a screenshot.

I think it’s an error related to the live running server instance. Please have a look

@AndyatFocallocal also sorry for posting this in an introduction thread. I am not yet familiar with the react and meteor team or thread if there is one

No worries @lowesilvan I moved it. The easiest way to navigate (for now) is to click Global at the top of the site. Once you get more familiar you’ll find bookmarks are useful, and also checking out the ‘latest’ tab in each category you’re interested in so you don’t miss stuff.

@lowesilvan in my case, it worked after running the commands “npm run start” multiple times.

We will have the onboarding this week, we can take a look together. Meanwhile, try running the command again lets see the result.

@lowe There’s a discussion about the issue here. If you get it running please let us know what you did and i’ll start creating a localhost bug-hunting post in the documentation section

@lowesilvan , this is it. I remember I did this: [Solved] Error: Certificate has expired - #22 by alfakentaurus - help - Meteor forums

You can see my comment in there

Prepend “NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED=0” to your command.

$ NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED=0 npm run start

Let me know if it works :wink:

Hi @Marvelxy I got past the npm loop issue. I restarted the cloning process and;
deleted package.lock
downgraded my babel/runtime version to “@babel/runtime”: “7.0.0-beta.47”
installed dependencies with meteor
Installed latest version of bcrypt
node-pre-gyp install --fallback-to-build
then npm run start works with some warnings

Right now the app doesn’t render as it shows lots of errors. I’m trying to debug

That’s strange. I don’t think you need to do any babel downgrade. I’ve set up the project on my Ubuntu and macOS, I never downgraded babel, and I never had the issue on the screenshot :thinking:

@Marvelxy probably best you delete that image after @lowesilvan has seen it as it has the keys in it

@scottly426 has also joined and is working through setting up a localhost. They are based in California, so i would suggest Sunday evening for the rest of us as that will be morning/day time for them.

How about 19:00 Sunday for us, which would be 11:00 for Scottly. Does that work for you guys?
