React uses webpack-dev-server, which uses internal-ip. The internal-ip
package was fixed to work on IBM i in version 4.x. The above pull request
updates the webpack-dev-server dependency and I believe this will solve
your problem in webpack-dev-server version 3.2.0 or newer.
Right now, react-scripts has a dependency on webpack-dev-server 3.1.

Anyway, I've submitted a pull request to fix your problem. Keep an eye on
it. When it lands in a release, hopefully everything works!
Here's my PR:

Subject: [IBMiOSS] problem installing create-react-app package
Sent by: "OpenSource" <opensource-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>


I'm trying to explore the node.js path on our iSeries.

After a couple of test we are trying to install the create-react-app

However we are getting an error and the install is doing a rollback.

-bash-4.4$ npm init react-app todolist

npx: installed 63 in 7.294s

Creating a new React app in /home/RODIUSD/node_pj/todolist.

Installing packages. This might take a couple of minutes.

Installing react, react-dom, and react-scripts...


npm ERR! notsup Unsupported platform for internal-ip@3.0.1: wanted

npm ERR! notsup Valid OS:

npm ERR! notsup Valid Arch: any

npm ERR! notsup Actual OS: aix

npm ERR! notsup Actual Arch: ppc64

Aborting installation.

npm install --save --save-exact --loglevel error react react-dom
react-scripts has failed.

Deleting generated file... node_modules

Deleting generated file... package.json

Deleting todolist/ from /home/RODIUSD/node_pj



Seems one dependency is not able to run on aix.

Has anyone faced this problem already and what would be the solution, if
there is one.
