Yeah, srsly dude. This isn’t right for us either. I think that brew upgrade I did last night broke something, must have upgraded node. Apparently upgrading beyond node-sass 6.0.1 is fine now. Last time this happened I had to downgrade node.


No, can’t see anything above 6.0.1 out there :S I need to get back to node@14 again.

Robs-MacBook-Pro:ui rl$ brew unlink node

What a faff. Now I can play with d3
