Hi! I have been battling a weird issue with building my Gatsby site in a CI pipeline. The problem seems to be somehow related to the package

Everything works fine when building the site locally, but in a CI the build fails. I’ve tried building in Netlify as well as Github Actions.

The error I get is following:

Can't resolve 'react-icons/fi' in '/home/runner/work/site-name/studio/schemas/objects/sections'

Hi Renne! This doesn’t explain why it would work locally, but still: are you using

Also, make sure that you've declared
as a dependency in your
. It's easy to forget, and sometimes leads to it finding a different version of react-icons somewhere else (because it's used by the frontend, for instance) and uses that, which can lead to these sort of errors.

Turned out I was just stupid 😄 Some weird VS Code autocorrect thing had corrected me to import something from the studio directory within a component on my Gatsby site 😅
Huge thanks for the help though, Peter and Espen, appreciate it

Glad to hear it was just an autocorrect issue, nasty as that is 😉 Thanks for posting back!
