Cannot deploy functions, rules or indexes


I started testing out pipelines here will a full featured repo. The pipelines failed.  Eventually, I troubleshot it down to discover that the issue is not with hosting, but the other features.  The one I care most about is firebase functions.


The error is that ts-lint is missing.  This makes me think that the problem has to do with "functions" not being at the root and the pipeline doesn't "understand" that.  This repo, also has a front end so it's impractical to put functions at the root.

I run npm install, but this only works for the root project. I also added this to my pipeline:

`npm --prefix ./function install ./function


and that didn't seem to help either, as per here:

Anyone have and solve this problem?

After updating my question, I realized that what I attempted was correct. I just needed to spell the folder name correctly! 


The command to add to the pipeline is:

npm --prefix ./functions install ./functions

note that I was missing the S.  That fixes the tslint issue.  Now, I have another one.

Good to see, and makes sense that the install failed previously.

Like Wayne Kaskie likes this

From the error reporting and especially the warning, it looks like that `npm install` has not been run. 

As each pipeline step is running in a new container with only the git project checkout by default (your mileage may vary, options are available):

Check the life cycles of the tooling are complete in each pipeline step. E.g. when using `npm`, `npm install` is normally required.

At least it sounds reasonable to me that this could be the reason that the `tslint` utility is not available.

Just an educated guess: Are you using npm to manage tslint via the tslint package?

That is my guess as well, however, I don't know how to remedy it. I can't be the only person using the firebase pipeline for functions.

Guess so, but I'm pretty sure you're not the only person using npm :).

Unrelated to the install issue, I've seen that tslint is deprecated. When you have things up and running, might be something you'd like to look into.
