Compilation errors after upgrading Sanity due to missing react-icons

Last updated: Feb 17, 2021
I just upgraded Sanity, and I get compilation errors for all the react icons, e.g. :
Error: Can't resolve 'react-icons/lib/io/android-color-palette'.
Can these not be used anymore?

Hi User, you might have upgraded from a version before
in this case, where we removed our own use (and therefore the dependency) of
in the studio.
If you scroll down to the
Breaking changes header on this page, you should find instructions on how to fix the issue either by adding v2 of
as a dependency or by upgrading to v3 and updating the import statements: https://github.com/sanity-io/sanity/releases/tag/v2.0.1

Yes, I did upgrade from a version before 2.0.1. I will take a look at the link. Thank you for the fast reply! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€

I updatd icons to v3, then ran
npm install --global @sanity/cli
then ran

sanity codemod reactIconsv3
but I get:

@sanity/core not installed in current project
`Project-specific commands not available until you run `sanity install``
Do I still need to do some updates?

You may have to run
sanity install
before running the codemod, but that should be all ๐Ÿ™‚

Hehe, my brain though I had already run the sanity install....now I ran it for real.... almost there... Now when running the
command I get


throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event


Error: spawn npx ENOENT

at Process.ChildProcess._handle.onexit (internal/child_process.js:232:19)

at onErrorNT (internal/child_process.js:407:16)

at process._tickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:63:19)

Emitted 'error' event at:

at onErrorNT (internal/child_process.js:407:16)

I do not have an events.js file in my project...

I ended up changing the import paths manually. But now it works.
