GatsbyCloud users report issues with Lerna in multi-package repositories

This is a GatsbyCloud + Lerna question, but before creating a GitHub issue I thought I’d ask.
Builds on GC fail since a week ago. Believe it’s not honoring the base directory site setting. It works fine on Netlify and locally.

My guess is GC isn’t looking out for the multi-package repo scenario, and a change on their end broke that ability?


ERROR Failed to compile: Error: Command failed with ENOENT: lerna bootstrap --registry=<https://registry.npmjs.org/>

Hey. That should help -&gt; https://www.reddit.com/r/gatsbyjs/comments/11rr2l5/error_failed_to_compile_error_lerna_bootstrap/ TL;DR GC don’t like lerna anymore ^^

Thanks. I did look at that. Their solution was just: stop using Lerna, delete the package.json 😂

I put in a support ticket to push GatsbyCloud to start supporting monorepos again, since they claim to.

If you’re not in a hurry, hopefully you’ll manage to find a solution.I had the same issue and lost so much time because of this ... On the bright side I found out that I wasn’t needing Lerna as much as I thought to
😂 😂 😂That being said it appears from nowhere and don’t even seem to be documented ...
Good luck!

Fair. My pain isn’t immediate, I use Netlify for actual hosting and GatsbyCloud just for previews… only content authors are suffering at the moment. Lerna is more of a nice to have, but I’m trying to keep it.
Looks like more Reddit activity about this problem…

GatsbyCloud has fixed this issue!

We had a lot of issues when moving from 1.0 to Learna 3 and are now using Learna 6.4.1. I am glad you were able to fix it. We found Netlify worked when Gatsby Cloud did not. We also found Learna had issues adding node modules to the web folder and we had to add them manually to make things work. This is how we structured and it works great on both Gatsby Cloud and Netlify now.
Here are some great additional resources for you too.
