Trying to run local replica of dfinity internet identity. But it throws this error

I am getting the following error. Can anyone help me with this?

That’s new to me. I’ll see if they added some dependency that needs to be documented in the Readme

Okay @kpeacock. Let me know, if you got some fix. I had blocked there.

I’m not encountering that error. From the Readme, you need these requirements:

  • dfx version 0.7.0

  • Rust version 1.51

  • NodeJS (with npm) version TBD

  • CMake

Then run the following steps:

npm install

dfx start [--clean] [--background]

II_ENV=development dfx deploy --no-wallet --argument '(null)'

These are the versions I am using.


I didn’t get what is node js version TBD?

And I also wanted to know, how to use multiple dfx versions… Is it possible? Because I am using dfx 0.7.2 for my project but internet identity is on dfx 0.7.0.

Thanks for reply.

They didn’t specify a node version. I’m also running 16, so I think you’re fine.

Dfx 0.7.0 and 0.7.2 should both work, but if you want to use another version, you can install it specifically with

DFX_VERSION=0.7.0 sh -ci "$(curl -fsSL"

and then

DFX_VERSION=0.7.2 dfx start

You can lock the dfx version for a project by specifying "dfx" in your dfx.json, and I personally use an alias of dfxv where I can then pass the version I want, e.g. dfxv 0.7.0

dfxv () {
	if [ -n "$1" ]
		export DFX_VERSION="$1"
	sh -ci "$(curl -fsSL"
