Every minor release we update dependencies to get the latest fixes and improvements. We do this early in the release cycle so that we have some more time to find regressions and issues. This is done on all folders with a package.json, including:
git checkout master && git pull- get the latest code
git checkout -b "<issue>-update-dendencies"- make a branch
Then for each folder go through these steps.
npm ci- update your local node_modules to match expected
npm outdated- report on any dependencies which aren’t at the latest
npm install --save[-dev] package@version- install the latest version (be careful and read the release notes if the new version is a major change from the current)
npm dedupe- remove duplicated dependencies
npm audit fix- automatically fix any nested dependencies with vulnerabilities
npm audit- get a report on any remaining vulnerabilities and manually scan it to see if there’s anything else you can do
bootstrapto 4+ as it has many breaking changes. One day we will either raise an issue to upgrade it or migrate off it, but that is outside the scope of this change.
select2as the latest patch always seems to fail.
jqueryto 5.6.0+ as the
select2search input looses focus on click event, this is an open issue in their repository.
webapp/jqueryis the same as
api/enketo-xsltis the same as
loadash/coresince 4.17.21 is failing, this is an open issue in their repository.
helmetsince they aren’t supporting NodeJS 8 anymore. Their minimum is NodeJS 10+.
npm ci errors with “errno -17” in shared-libs you may need to manually remove the nested dependencies from the package-lock.json. This needs move investigation to work out why this is happening.
If you get
TypeError: "$(...).select2 is not a function" then either:
run dedupeto remove the enketo-core copy.
