TS: Install Lucid

Hi peoples!

How to install Lucid in typescript adonis project

I created a project with create-adonis-ts-app
And now I need add Lucid ORM

I tried install globally the cli with: npm i -g @adonisjs/cli and execute on root project this command:

adonis install @adonisjs/lucid

Then I recieve this error:

class BaseCommand extends ace.Command {
                              ^

TypeError: Class extends value undefined is not a constructor or null

Hey @max10rogerio! :wave:

You are trying to mix Adonis 5 packages with Adonis 4 packages. I’d recommend you to wait until Adonis 5 is released.

Hello @romain.lanz,

I’m trying use Adonis with Typescript…

This is a test with the package “create-adonis-ts-app”…

I created project with default settings and now I need install Lucid ORM.

I don’t know if I will have problems installing Lucid only with command: “yarn add @adonisjs/lucid”

The new version of Adonis (V5), that is going to be released at the end of the month will be TypeScript based.

The CLI you are trying to use create a boilerplate to use V5, but it’s not complete.
You should wait for the release if you want to have no issue.
