Fixing The Gyp Error For NPM

This is going to be a short article. Not much of an educational post but more of a straight to the point solution post.

For the previous article on installing asdf


While installing the latest version of node into an existing repo using asdf, I ran into the gyp error when trying to run npm install.

The fix for it was simple. Delete existing node_modules and the package-lock.json file is what solved the problem. The package-lock.json file was generated with an older version of NodeJS. Ran npm install and everything worked perfectly this time.
