Sharp Error

Some people have had various issues when using Sharp. This is the library that Astro uses for image optimization. Here are some things to try that have worked for others.

If you see this error, it likely means astro-compress and astro are trying to use different versions of sharp. This seems to work fine on Windows, but not Linux. Here is the solution I have found - add the following to your package.json file:

package.json
"overrides": {
"sharp": "^0.33.0"
}

Other things you can try:

  • Update your Node version
    • I am currently running Node v20.10.0
  • Try deleting node_modules and reinstalling dependencies with npm install
  • If Sharp is installed as a dependency, try removing it, deleting node_modules, and reinstalling dependencies with npm install
  • If Sharp is not already installed as a dependency, try installing it with npm install sharp
  • Try installing sharp with npm install sharp --ignore-engines
