.npmrc private registry not installing on deployment

Hi there, I am trying to deploy version of app that requires .npmrc file that authenticates with a private registry.

Specifically I am trying to use the @tiptap-pro/extension-emoji and I am getting 500 errors when trying run yarn install --frozen-lockfile

It is a rails 7 application. It only started having this issue when having to authenticate a private repository using yarn. All works locally as expected and the .npmrc authentication file works.

Here are the log files. Trying to deploy ASAP, if anyone knows how to resolve this that would be really helpful. Thanks!

Can you try changing that line in your Dockerfile to:

COPY --link .npmrc package.json yarn.lock ./

Thank you so much for your quick reply! This fixed it up :grinning:

Cool. I’ve made a change to dockerfile-rails so that .npmrc and .yarnrc files (if present) will be added to the COPY statement automatically when the Dockerfile is generated:
