Hi ,

In answer to your questions:

  • what you are trying to achieve
    I am trying to deploy a github create react app using the automatic building and deploying. Currently, i am building and deploying locally which works fine.
  • what you have already tried
    I have tried setting environment variables because they are present locally like :
SASS_PATH=./node_modules;./src

but still no luck

  • What the problem is, including any error messages you have received in your terminal window or in the developer console
    this is the error:
Failed to compile.

4:31:35 PM: ./src/App.scss
4:31:35 PM: @import "@material/list/mdc-list";

  • if the error is occurring in multiple browsers / machines, or just on one
    since this is a deployment problem, the error is just when i use automatic netlify deployment. works fine with a local npm run build ; netlify deploy

thanks,
any help appreciated!

From what I read, the environment variable works differently on different Operating Systems. Thus, it might have worked locally, but not online.

What you could do is, instead is use a more general import method (~@material/list/mdc-list) or set the variable like SASS_PATH=node_modules:src. Reference here: Adding a Sass Stylesheet | Create React App
