What do I need to do to ensure my Appflow builds keep working?
The Appflow team will work to ensure that updates to the Appflow build environments go as smoothly as possible with minimal downtime for customers.
There is no specific action required from customers at this time, other than to make note of the upcoming changes.
Once the maintenance has been completed, we will post an update to the Appflow Build Environment section in the KB with the updated versions of Node (and any other build environment variables that may have changed).
What do I need to do to update my local environment?
NOTE: The Ionic team does not support or troubleshoot local Node/npm installation issues.
The Ionic team encourages users to update to the latest LTS Node version their project supports - for most users, that is the latest Node 12.X.
If you are still using Node 10, it is strongly recommended that you update to Node 12.
