I have a quick question about updating node/bower/gulp as I’ve never had to do that before. I have an old project laying around that I finally have the go ahead to wrap up. It’s quite a bit old, which, got me to thinking that I hadn’t updated my setup in a while and decided to update node/bower/gulp.
I’m using Sage 8.4 for my projects (I have a slightly customized version of it I use) I was running a rather old version of node and I ended up using n to upgrade to 4.8.4 (after realizing the latest LTS didn’t play so nice). I also upgraded Bower/Gulp using npm install -g bower/npm install -g gulp.
Everything seems to have gone fairly smoothly, the only issue is I got an error when trying to run gulp watch saying I needed to run, “npm rebuild node-sass” - which - I did and now everything seems to run fine, however, it got me to thinking is there anything else I need to worry about here or any problems I might run into?
Here’s the specific output:
Node Sass could not find a binding for your current environment: Linux 64-bit with Node.js 4.x Found bindings for the following environments: - Linux 64-bit with Node 0.10.x This usually happens because your environment has changed since running `npm install`. Run `npm rebuild node-sass` to build the binding for your current environment.
Also did I really need to upgrade node, is there any sort of security issue for using a dated version - or - not so much for this purpose? (I only use node on this box for roots/sage).
Thanks so much for helping me understand, I know it’s a potential noob question.
