Electron Auto-reload doesn't work well in Node v15.0.1



  • Hi guys,

    I recently updated my NodeJS to v15.0.1 and noticed that whenever I do code changes, the electron reload doesn’t work well. Sometimes it will just display an empty white Electron window with no error whatsoever. Doing a refresh doesn’t fix it. I had to manually terminate the current process/window and run the application again, which is too cumbersome.

    Everything was working perfect on my older node version (12.18.3).

    I am still the following Quasar framework versions:

    • quasar - 1.7.0
    • @quasar/app - 1.4.5
    • @quasar/extras - 1.4.0
    • vue - 2.6.11
    • vue-router - 3.1.3
    • electron - 7.1.8

    Anyone else encountered this?

    Thanks!



  • Hi @keechan ,

    This might help.

    “Do not use uneven versions of Node i.e. 11, 13, etc. These versions aren’t tested with Quasar and often cause issues due to their experimental nature. We highly recommend always using the LTS version of Node.” - https://quasar.dev/quasar-cli/installation

    It’s recommended to use node version 12.x for Quasar.
