Description Andreas Schneider 2022-01-26 17:24:21 UTC
If you want to consume nodejs16-devel with a node-gyp project so it can use the headers it doesn't work:

export npm_config_nodedir=/usr/include/node16
node-gyp ...

This gives e.g. the following error:

make: Entering directory '/tmp/signal-desktop-1Tah1oUK/Signal-Desktop-5.29.0/node_modules/fs-xattr/build'
  CC(target) Release/obj.target/xattr/src/async.o
In file included from ../src/async.c:6:
../src/error.h:5:10: fatal error: node_api.h: No such file or directory
    5 | #include <node_api.h>

node-gyp reads /usr/include/node16/common.gypi

If I add -I/usr/include/node16 to the cflags for linux, it is able to find the headers.
