Deploy fails when a node module is installed from GitHub instead of NPM

Site: cyclos-app.netlify.app

My package.json installs a node module from GitHub . This module has a prepare script which builds the module during installation. This is a necessary step for github based installs.

"@project-serum/swap-ui": "github:secretshardul/swap-ui#export-components"

Here’s the module repository: swap-ui/package.json at 879d77a9515c3707b3999e41004af95c156f2143 · secretshardul/swap-ui · GitHub

"prepare": "yarn build"

The issue is that my package uses NPM, whereas the prepare script calls Yarn. I have Yarn installed on my local PC so builds work, but they fail on Netlify.

What I’ve already tried:

  1. Changing build script to npm i -g yarn && npm run build.
  2. Setting NETLIFY_USE_YARN as true in environment variables.

The issue is resolved if prepare script is changed to npm run build. However the yarn based script is present in the main branch, so I do not want this approach.
