I'm trying to run through this tutorial on DApp development with Ligo (https://tezos.com/developers/tutorials/nft-ligo-marketplace/) and am running into an error.

TAQ_LIGO_IMAGE=ligolang/ligo:0.73.0 taq ligo --command "install @ligo/fa"

gives me the following error:

I cannot reproduce it locally so it's hard to find the solution.

FYI You are using docker, esy is directly installed inside so you should not have to install esy before.

Some clues :

When you run this command, the command behind should be :

docker run --rm -v "$PWD":"$PWD" -w "$PWD" ligolang/ligo:0.73.0 install @ligo/fa

Can you try it to verify it's not related to taqueria ?

Maybe you should verify what is inside your image by running :

docker run -it --entrypoint=/bin/bash ligolang/ligo:0.73.0

Maybe you can also try to check the shasum :

docker inspect --format='{{index .RepoDigests 0}}' ligolang/ligo:0.73.0

  • Are you usign a package.json file or a esy.json file ? Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 15:22
  • Looks like you have a package.json, If you are on taq, probably you are building a dApp, and so you have to use a esy.json (it'll be not the case in ligo 1.0.0 only a ligo.json will be accepted ) To intialize it you have to create esy.json file containing {} Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 15:24
  • I did create an esy.json file (just like the mentioned tutorial said). Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 16:30
  • Weird, esy try to install your package.json here.. Any chance to have access to your code somewhere to see if the issue come from your local or the project itself ? Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 19:20

You need to install esy using npm install -g esy, more info can be found here: https://esy.sh/

  • Same error as before. Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 12:47
