When using webpack and libraries that want to use when.js (
when), it is possible that the following error is thrown when compiling:
 ERROR in ./node_modules/when/lib/env.js 32:14-35  Module not found: Error: Can't resolve 'vertx' in 'path-to-project/node_modules/when/lib'
The issue seems to be isolated to webpack, and is documented on
when‘s github. Running
npm install vertx or
npm install @vertx/core will not resolve the issue either, since the problem lays in the import of vertx in the
To resolve the issue:
npm i @vertx/core)
Edit the file
./node_modules/when/lib/env.js, and change line 32 from
var vertx = vertxRequire('vertx');
var vertx = vertxRequire('@vertx/core');
This will reference the @vertx/core package instead of the vertx package, which does not seem to be able to be found when using webpack and npm. I haven’t experienced any issues with just using vertx/core. You might also need to update your gitignore to include the changes to the library if others are also working on your project.
