JavaScript Using SQL ORMs with Node.js Getting Started with Sequelize Install and Configure Sequelize and SQLite

NPM is throwing a bunch of errors when I try to install SQLite3

Whenever I run npm install --save sqlite3@^4.0.9 in my integrated terminal in Visual Studio Code, NPM throws these errors:

npm WARN deprecated request@2.88.2: request has been deprecated, see
npm WARN deprecated har-validator@5.1.5: this library is no longer supported

and then it doesn't work if I run npm start, since I didn't install SQLite3 successfully. Can someone help? Thanks.

babyoscar i also encountered this, it seems that it is a problem with the new version of sqlite3, maybe its corrupted or specific libraries are deprecated because all other versions work. try running npm install --save sqlite3@^5.0.0 its a more recent one that is not that old

Thanks! It worked. Is there any breaking changes since v5.0.0 is one major release ahead of this course?

babyoscar i am about halfway through the course, and so far I had not had an issue with it. Core functionality should stay the same, and it shouldn’t matter too much since you are working mostly with sequelize. If u have any questions just tag me.

Okay, thanks!
