Eventstreams build is broken
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimated Story Points


Eventstreams tries to install node-rdkafka@2.5.1 which depends on librdkafka@0.11.6, however, we only have librdkafka@0.11.3 installed and backported into Jessie, so the build is failing and we obviously can't deploy eventstreams.

I believe that we should restrict the node-rdkafka package version to 2.3.X in event streams dependencies now and not try upgrading librdkafka to 0.11.6 right now since librdkafka 1.0 is coming out very soon (it's RC7 now).

Event Timeline

Hm, not sure why EventStreams is requiring node-rdkafka@2.5.1. EventStreams itself doesn't require node-rdkafka, its KafkaSSE dependency does. KafkaSSE requires ^2.3.4.

KafkaSSE requires ^2.3.4.

2.5.1 satisfies ^2.3.4 :) I think we should lock the node-rdkafka dependency either by removing the ^ or by adding a package-lock. The driver has an external dependency (librdkafka) and in general too important to be loose on its version.

Can we do a package-lock in the EventStreams repo?

It's still undecided what to do with package-lock (T179229), so maybe let's just freeze the verison?

+1 on freezing the version in package.json in this instance, as this is what we really need.
