Build system fail



Even yesterday all was good. I successfully compiled Semantic-UI flawlessly from a semantic.json file.
When I got to work today, it all started to fail. If install semantic-ui with

npm install semantic-ui

and if I cd’d to semantic dir and gulp build this is what I get:

I tried to remove node_modules/, ~/.npm/ and semantic/, package-lock.json and semantic.json completely and the error persists. The strange thing is that if I delete node_modules/ and semantic/ and maintain semantic.json with auto-install true and run npm install semantic-ui it installs and compiles sematic-ui fine.

Anyone has any idea what’s going on ? was any dependent package updated today ?


Removed the whole project, cloned from github again, now the first time I try to gulp build it shows:

    throw err;
Error: Cannot find module 'gulp-autoprefixer'
    at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:326:15)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:277:25)
    at Module.require (module.js:354:17)
    at require (internal/module.js:12:17)
    at Object.<anonymous> (/home/77363698953/des/js/prj2/semantic/tasks/watch.js:13:18)

    at Function.Module._load (module.js:301:12)
    at Module.require (module.js:354:17)
    at require (internal/module.js:12:17)

So I tryied npm install -g gulp-autoprefixer and got the same error (“Cannot find module ‘gulp-autoprefixer’”). Then tried npm install gulp-autoprefixer and got back to the first error (“Cannot read property ‘match’ of undefined”).

any help apreciated, thanks
