Unhandled Rejection: TypeError: Cannot Read Property 'setTimeout' of Undefined

Hello. Trying to understand importing assets to sanity. After reading https://www.sanity.io/docs/importing-data am I right that images can only be imported by referencing them as part of a document? I would like to just import the images to make them available to the authors when they build content but I don't know how they're going to use them.

Hm. I'm surprised that this is the first time we had that question. I must admit I’m not sure if it’s possible upload just the images via the CLI, but you could get around it by making an ndjson like this.
{ "_type": "imageImport", "image": { "_type": "image", "_sanityAsset": "image@file:///path/to/image/file.jpg", } }
Import the documents (and the assets), and then run this script to delete all the
imageImport
 files after you're done with
*[_type == "imageImport"]

I'm surprised too 😅. Thanks Knut I'll give it a try!!

Should I be worried that the export gave a
Unhandled rejection: TypeError: Cannot read property 'setTimeout' of undefined
error and it's been exporting for 10 minutes now 🙂 ?

I'm exporting a very small dataset btw

Not sure what that means. Try running it with
DEBUG=sanity*
prepended to the export(?) command?

🤔 is this giving any hints?

Did an upgrade and export again and this time it worked. This is a "my code (works|doesn't work) and have no idea why" situation!!
