Fixing Netlify build error - Treating warnings as error ..
When I created a new React project and utilized Netlify to serve the website, I got thrown an error as such.
12:37:10 PM: Treating warnings as errors because process.env.CI = true. 12:37:10 PM: Most CI servers set it automatically. 12:37:10 PM: 12:37:10 PM: Failed to compile.
From this error, all I could understand was
process.env.CI = true is causing the build to pick up warnings as errors. The fix seems pretty easy as Netlify provides an ability to configure build process.
Head to Netlify > Your Project > Site Settings > Build & deploy > Build settings > Build command.
We need to pass
CI=false and follow up with our build command.
For example, for my React project, default build command is
npm run build but after adding
CI=false, it would be as such.
CI=false npm run build
