ReferenceError: Buffer is not defined

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

Seems like starknet.js is depending on libraries relying on polyfills (like Buffer) which modern framework do not like

Using vite.js I get

ReferenceError: Buffer is not defined
    at ../node_modules/.pnpm/@ledgerhq+devices@6.27.1/node_modules/@ledgerhq/devices/lib/hid-framing.js (http://localhost:3000/node_modules/.vite/starknet.js?v=53067631:25687:13)

Any idea how to get passed that ?

As I can see the error seems to be coming from ledger dependencies used in starknet.js. @ledgerhq/hw-transport-webusb this dependency is causing the issue.

If you go on their github, you will find the open issue
