Node Sass does not yet support your current environment

Node Sass does not yet support your current environment

If you ever update your version of node then you might start running into the “Node Sass does not yet support your current environment” error. I’ve had this happen a few times (including today), and thought that it might be nice to put a fix here for anyone who might be looking.

This problem happens because the version of node-sass that you have installed is no longer compatible with the version of node you are trying to run it with. I guess this could work either way, but it is more likely that your node-sass version is behind; which is nice, because I would rather upgrade an npm package than downgrade node.

Here are a couple of things you could try. Don’t worry, they are nice and quick, with little fuss.

Note: If you have installed node-sass globally then you will need to run with a ‘-g’ flag.

Rebuild node-sass

npm rebuild node-sass

or

npm rebuild -g node-sass

Running rebuild basically recompiles the package to match the new node version. However, if this doesn’t work for you (which it doesn’t for me) then your best bet is to uninstall and reinstall node-sass.

Uninstall and re-install node-sass

npm uninstall node-sass && npm install node-sass

or

npm uninstall -g node-sass && npm install -g node-sass

Yup, that’s right. If it doesn’t work, wipe it clean and start again!
