Re: Signal K node server instructions for Windows

So has anyone actually got signalk to install on a win10 machine using NPM?

I don't really know enough about node to know how to fix the errors I'm getting >>

Looks like maybe the postinstall script isn't happy>>

Re: Signal K node server instructions for Windows

Thanks for your efforts.

I believe the last one was actually a success, the postinstall throws an error that doesn't matter.

But I would really really appreciate if people would report problems they encounter so that they come to the attention of the authors. I read CF sporadically, whereas Github issues related to the SK Node server end up in my mailbox.

So could we move the how-to-install-sk-server-on-windows discussion to https://github.com/SignalK/signalk-s...ode/issues/899 ?

A small detail: .signalk directory is created by the setup script or on first start, not by the installation process.

And while it makes perfect sense to document OpenCpn - Signal K interoperation stuff in OpenCpn wiki generic installations instructions should be part of SK server documentation, where all Windows users could find it.

Seeing the comment above from teppokurki, out of curiosity, have you tried actually to launch the signalk-server? It looks like the .signalk directory will be create at the launch. My remark was if one already has such a folder.

BTW, I can see from the thread Rick linked here that you have been using versions of node.js like 13, 10 etc. In this domain of signalk-server, and with other npm services like TiddlyWiki (for authoring) I am using always the long term support version, which seems to be currently 12.13.1 LTS. Unless you have some development work going on, I would suggest you to remove and manually clean all the traces of the other installations, then start again, from a clean table using a node.js LTS version.

Please report here your findings, they will be very much appreciated for the documentation. And, as teppokurki said, he and other developers of this great software which signalk-server without doubt is, would also appreciate to be kept informed here: https://github.com/SignalK/signalk-server-node/issues
