JSS v13.0.2

Node v12.16.1

  • I think it was related to the Node version. I downgraded Node to v10.19.0 and now it seems to work correctly. – bdodsworth Feb 27 at 3:37
  • May be but i am using Node version (12.14.0) and JSS version is (13.0.2) and it is working fine for me. – Rishiraj Shekhawat Feb 27 at 11:40
