Possible Problems with sp-pnp-js packaging

Iron Contributor

I have been trying to get @SPDoctor's SiteInfo web part working with SPFx framework.  One of the dependencies is sp-pnp-js.  I get failures when I try and compile the webpart with gulp serve :-

operable program or batch file.

I finally got this to work by doing the following :-


npm install typings -g


which fixed the first problem and the I got "cannot find module  'sp-pnp-js'@ error


I tried npm install -g sp-pnp-js --save


That did not work.


But npm install --save sp-pnp-js did work !!








In the worst scenario


npm cache clean
npm install typings -g
npm install sp-pnp-js --save
