When building with Xcode, this happens:
Error: EMFILE: too many open files and building fails (the bundler cannot create the JS bundle).
I could perhaps fix this by installing
watchman (or so I read), but this also fails, because it requires Python 3.8, and installing that will fail with “invalid instruction”, meaning that I have older hardware which isn’t supported.
Haven’t tried to build this outside Xcode yet.
Putting this here in case someone has directions for me until I go further… Thanks.
You areally need watchman. How are you trying to install it? It’s available on Homebrew.
I was just able to fix this, woohoo! With this: https://stackoverflow.com/a/59679356/306337 i.e. by installing Node 10 and reinstalling node_modules.
I did try to install watchman with Homebrew. Homebrew went to install Python 3.8 from the source, and compiling that failed with “invalid instruction”. I have older hardware which isn’t supported, it seems.
But anyway, I got forward now. But bumped into another issue (“Could not connect to development server”). I suppose this is just another issue that can be solved.
