@michbeck100 said in Pimatic & Node 8.0:
Could you explain, what the biggest problems are?
As said earlier, I think the biggest hurdle is to partially rewrite the plugin management which currently relies on deprecated features of Npm 2, like the hierarchical placement of dependencies in the file system. May be it is not too bad, but it needs a closer look and thought.
How about the mobile frontend? Did you look at this, too? When I tried pimatic with node 8 based on your branch it seemed to work fine, but obviously it was just running the compiled/transformed JS code. So, when this is built from source I expect one will also run into some issues. Some packages use by the front are completely EOL and the code needs to be ported/migrated to alternative packages.
If you have some to work on this in the future may be we can liaise at some point and jointly work on this. I think I can find some days in November to work on this.
