Failed to build kibana 5.3.1 from source


(Ravi) #1

Hi All,

When i tried to build kibana binary from source am facing issue while running command "npm run build"

Followed steps which are mentioned in https://github.com/elastic/kibana/blob/5.x/CONTRIBUTING.md

npm install executed successfully.

When i tried with "npm run build" am getting below error.

Warning: Client request error: connect EHOSTUNREACH 104.20.22.46:443 Use --force to continue.

Am i missing something here?
My requirement is to get the kibana rpm/binary from the source code.

Can you run with npm run build -- --debug and paste the output? Maybe it will give us some extra information.


(Ravi) #3

Hello Thanks for the response.Even i tried with --debug but logs are same in both.Anyway i pasted complete log below.
bash-4.2# npm run build -- --debug

(Stacey Gammon) #4

Looks like this is what is causing the failure. Do you have access to an internet connection?


(Stacey Gammon) #5

I guess that's a stupid question since you are here responding to me. Doh! :slight_smile:


(Ravi) #6

yes i do have an access to internet connection in my environment.I set proxy even with 'npm config set "proxy....." '


(Stacey Gammon) #7

Does npm i work?


(Ravi) #8

Yup It worked fine to me.But observed it skipped few optional dependencies.I believe that should be fine.
FYI,
npm WARN optional SKIPPING OPTIONAL DEPENDENCY: fsevents@^1.0.0 (node_modules/chokidar/node_modules/fsevents):

(Stacey Gammon) #9

Can you hit the url directly? Try https://nodejs.org/dist/v6.10.2/node-v6.10.2-darwin-x64.tar.gz


(Ravi) #10

Am able to wget https://nodejs.org/dist/v6.10.2/node-v6.10.2-darwin-x64.tar.gz
it downloads the tar file. Is that the one your talking about?


(Stacey Gammon) #11

Hmmm, do you need the npm config set proxy call? Are you behind a proxy?

What happens if you delete it (npm config delete proxy) and try the build again?


(Ravi) #12

Initially i tried without setting proxy through npm config But i faced same error.


(Stacey Gammon) #13

Can you build master or does the problem only exist on 5.3.1? Does npm start work?


(Ravi) #14

I did tried it on build master as well but faced same issue.Looks like The issue is the proxy and the use of wreck.Am still trying to figure out the fix.

npm run elasticsearch and npm start doesn't work for me.

Is it mandatory to run elasticsearch and npm start before building kibana?


(Stacey Gammon) #15

No. npm run elasticsearch starts up an elasticsearch instance for Kibana to run against which can help with development so you don't have to kick up an es instance separately. You'll need to have some elasticsearch instance to run against, but it doesn't have to be by the command npm run elasticsearch. For instance, I have the elasticsearch repo checked out and run gradle run in that folder to start an instance.

npm start starts Kibana without building any binaries, while npm run build will create the binaries you can then use to run Kibana.

I was asking only to see if the error was more widespread or only with the build process.

Regarding the error:

Error: ENOENT: no such file or directory, scandir '/kibana/node_modules/node-sass/vendor'

Sounds like npm install did not finish correctly - that folder should be in your node_modules as a result of that call.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your response for my queries.Finally am able to build the kibana successfully.
Referred https://github.com/hapijs/wreck/issues/64 (one of my team member suggested)
Workaround to fix this issues.

From the source code need to modify the kibana/tasks/build/download_node_builds.js
file.

Delete:
import wreck from 'wreck';

Add:
const Wreck = require('wreck');
const HttpProxyAgent = require('https-proxy-agent');
const proxy = process.env.https_proxy || 'http://127.0.0.1:80'; // this is placeholder logic
const agent = new HttpProxyAgent(proxy);
const wreck = Wreck.defaults({
agent
});

Then i tried to execute "npm run build" and am able to proceed further.

Thanks,
Ravi
