I setup our CI and do a lot of from scratch/clean npm install of our software. We use knex (^0.12.5) and a bunch of other packages.

Installing all packages in package.json with "npm install", without any existing packages in global or node_modules, fails for knex 0.12.5 as well as 0.12.4. Version 0.12.3 of knex works fine.

The installation of the knex package fails on postinstall with exit code 1

npm info lifecycle knex@0.12.5~postinstall: knex@0.12.5

> knex@0.12.5 postinstall /node_modules/knex
> node ./scripts/build.js lib "npm run build"

But for some reason I am able to install knex alone (without the other packages in package.json) without any problem:

npm install knex@0.12.5

It seems like any of the packages in packages.json conflicts with what knex >= 0.12.4 is doing in the postinstall script. Only the knex package fails to install, removing it from package.json and I am able to install all the other packages in package.json without a problem.

Any help is really appreciated.

That's strange. So I've gone back and forth and actually didn't want to have this script added to Knex, but I caved and added it back in with #1708. I'll look to get this patched by removing the postinstall for now.

I guess the question here is... if someone wants to install from a specific commit on master, do you think it's reasonable to just ask them to do the work of cd'ing into the dir and running npm install & npm build themselves?

Removed in 0.12.6 - still interested to hear your take on the best recommendation for folks who want to use master. Ping @vellotis

@tgriesser I couldn't replicate it with referenced NPM and NodeJS version.
