I am trying to build a docker image for my backend app that uses typescript. But the node-gyp is failing. I get the following error.

The #1 reason why this will not work, and never work, and why you can’t even troubleshoot this right off the bat, is because you’re using Windows for this.
Docker royally sucks in WSL2, and encryption is not exactly possible between the windows host and WSL VM, the build is likely to never work in this scenario. You’re better off building a VMWare VM, or a Hyper-V VM, and using that instead and retry, if the issue still persists lmk and idm helping out with the Docker config.
@Brock i have used wsl2 with docker for most of my work and it worked fine. But i agree with what you are saying I’ll boot up a vm or a Linux instance in the server and will try this. if it doesn’t work I’ll post here
Upgrade Node to the latest version, then in package.json make sure the latest node version is used.
Also, upgrade python to the latest version of 3.X. You’re using 16.19.1 I just realized for Node.JS, the current node-gyp cannot run on 16.19.
You need Node.JS 19.X or higher, just go to the latest version of Node.JS and this entire problem should go away.
And I do apologize, I didn’t realize what version of Node you were running before.
However, for Alpine Linux because it’s an odd one from what I’m reading, you may need to actually downgrade the Node.JS version to 15 or lower, or could try apt-get install build-essential and then retry building as well. This should upgrade/install all of the current compatible build packages.
It didn’t work, gives the same error. Also how will you install build-essentials in alpine, apt is not the package manager for alpine. It uses apk and the Alpine equivalent of build-essentials is build-base which I installed but it still didn’t work
This will install the Apt package manager, sorry about that I thought you knew how to install it. That’s my fault, you would modify the script above based on the source version of your Linux OS, package managers even like pacman are agnostic, you just install them on your linux distribution and you got it.
You can also build the APT package manager from source, too.
