Issue with automated build failing due to missing next.js CLI

Last updated: Aug 24, 2020
I’m having an issue with the build process. Every time an automated build kicks off from a Github push, the build fails. However if I restart/retry the deply with the cache cleared it builds / deploys successfully. EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Is next.js CLI included in your devDependencies and do you run install and/or cache node_modules before running.

I’m only saying because it’s clearly saying that it can’t find the command
Aug 24, 2020, 6:35 AM
oh doesn’t look like it. Here is my package.json

yes that might help. Though I’m surprised it works with a clean cache if that’s the case.
Aug 24, 2020, 6:38 AM
yeah, I thought it would be part of the starter project
Aug 24, 2020, 6:38 AM
I think they rely on the CLI tool being installed globally for your machine don’t they? It’s been a while since I used next.
Aug 24, 2020, 6:40 AM
yeah it is installed on my machine and works fine locally, it’s the deploy to netify that didn’t work
Aug 24, 2020, 6:44 AM
but looks like adding next.js to my package.json solved it. I owe you a beer!

No worries! Have a good one 👍
