Gatsby site deploy failed

Hi! I´m having a problem deploying a site created on gatsby. Started from a template, modified it and with ‘gatsby develop’ on local seems to work fine, but when I link the site from github to netlify and try to deploy I get this error:

error “gatsby-transformer-yaml” threw an error while running the onCreateNode lifecycle

The error itself seems to be with gatsby-transformer-yaml and a null property that it cannot read.

The deploy settings are set as following:

Base directory: Not set

Build command: gatsby build

Publish directory: public/

Builds: Active

Do yo know what might be the problem here? I might be missing important points because i´m not very experienced with Gatsby. If you need more information about the issue please let me know.

Thanks!

hmm, as this issue seems to be coming from gatsby itself, there are few things we can check.

Can you post the full build log also, please?

  • clear cache and redeploy, maybe gatsby’s dependencies didn’t download correctly
  • are you committing your package-lock file? it could be that there is some minor version conflict between the working config on your local machine and what we end up recreating on our server
  • is it a case issue (seems unlikely)

Thanks for the reply!

I´m going to check the posible solutions you gave me. In the meantime, here is the full build log:

Update: I now think the problem is some file missing in the repository, because when I download the repository from github to check it on local I get the same error (having previously installed all the dependencies with npm install).
Is it possible that the problem is coming from a file that the repository doesnt get with .gitignore?
Because the build in the local version (not the repository) its working fine. Here´s the content of the .gitignore file:

hey there,

the error is coming from here:

9:46:37 PM:
9:46:37 PM: TypeError: Cannot read property ‘id’ of null
9:46:37 PM:
9:46:37 PM: - gatsby-node.js:69
9:46:37 PM: [repo]/[gatsby-transformer-yaml]/gatsby-node.js:69:32

so this id is seemingly null. I can’t exactly say why.

do you have some information in an .env file that is maybe not making it to the server?
did you commit and push your package.lock file from a working local setup?

hey perry! thanks for the answer.

After investigating the error a little further, I found that the problem is not from netlify but gatsby itself, so thanks in advance for answering to an issue that doesn´t belongs here! (posted here first because I thought that it was netlify´s).

It runs fine on local, but when I send it to a repository (.gitignore included) the error appears again. I have a .env file but commited it, it has the business ID and the acces token (its for an instagram feed). Blind guessing, it might be something that stayed in the cache on local, or some file that the .gitignore doesn´t send. About that package.lock, i´ve commited it first but erased it, having the same result.

ah! instagram!

if you run a quick search here in the forums for “instagram” you will see a few other folks who also posted about trying to get data from the instagram api. maybe one of those threads will contain some answers?

I will be looking for that, huge thanks for the support!

good luck. if i see anything useful for you, i’ll definitely post it here :slight_smile:
