Importing NPM package / typerror


Im trying to use a NPM package with the following code:
import { Meteor } from ‘meteor/meteor’;
import * as five from ‘johnny-five’

Meteor.startup(function() {

var board = new five.Board();
var button;

	board.on("ready", Meteor.bindEnvironment(function() {
		button1 = new five.Button(2);
		button2 = new five.Button(3);
		button3 = new five.Button(4);
		button4 = new five.Button(5);

		button1: button1,
		button2: button2,
		button3: button3,
		button4: button4

	button1.on("down", function() {
		console.log("number 1 on vajutatud")

	button1.on("up", function() {
		console.log("number 1 on lahti lastud")
	button2.on("down", function() {
		console.log("number 2 on vajutatud")

	button2.on("up", function() {
		console.log("number 2 on lahti lastud")
	button3.on("down", function() {
		console.log("number 3 on vajutatud")

	button3.on("up", function() {
		console.log("number 3 on lahti lastud")
	button4.on("down", function() {
		console.log("number 4 on vajutatud")

	button4.on("up", function() {
		console.log("number 4 on lahti lastud")


But I get some strange typeError:

Am I doing somethign wrong with the import of the NPM package or what can be the issue here?

I’m getting the same error. Did you find a solution?

A temporary solution is to add
Math.log2 = function(x) { return Math.log(x) / Math.LN2 };
to node_modules/johnny-five/fn.js

I wonder what gives :confused:

It looks like the Math.log2 function is not supported on Android, Chrome for Android, and IE. In the Meteor code base I see them using Math.log(x) / Math.LN2. Maybe you should put a pull request to the johnny-five repo to change the use of Math.log2 to this other form.
