Getting the Client to Work with Node v.17


If you installed this project and tried to start the server for the client folder and got a message similar to this:

[webpack-cli] Error: error:0308010C:digital envelope routines::unsupported
    at new Hash (node:internal/crypto/hash:67:19)
    at Object.createHash (node:crypto:130:10)
    at BulkUpdateDecorator.hashFactory (/opt/src/node_modules/webpack/lib/util/createHash.js:155:18)
  opensslErrorStack: [ 'error:03000086:digital envelope routines::initialization error' ],
  library: 'digital envelope routines',
  reason: 'unsupported',

You're probably have a Node v.17 or above, so what you need to do is change a line of code in your client/package.json in your scripts properties:

    "start": "react-scripts --openssl-legacy-provider start",
