Installing earlier using npm is ignored


(Kay Lukas) #1

I’m trying to install an earlier version of a repository using npm.

It’s regarding

These are my dependencies:

  "dependencies": {
    "aglio": "^2.3.0",
    "atob": "^2.1.1",
    "btoa": "^1.1.2",
    "daemonize-process": "^1.0.9",
    "es6-promise": "^4.0.3",
    "express": "^4.16.3",
    "log4js": "^0.6.38",
    "multer": "^1.2.0",
    "pmcrypto": "github:ProtonMail/pmcrypto.git#v3.3.4",
    "request": "^2.87.0"

If I run npm i pmcrypto 3.3.5 is installed:

Moved to #support because this is a run-script failure, not an npm failure.
