Question: is there an expected Node/npm version for development?

See original GitHub issue

I ran npm i and my package-lock.json was modified significantly from what’s in the repo. This generally happens if you run npm i using a different version of npm from what was used when package-lock.json was last updated. I’m using Node v12.7.0 and npm v6.13.1.

I looked into package.json file hoping to find the engines field which would tell me what version of Node and npm is expected but didn’t find it.

Suggestion: specify expected version of Node and npm in engines field of package.json.

@bolatovumar it will be different since the devDependencies aren’t version locked at the moment. This will result in you probably having a newer eslint, or a newer jest. Which will result in a different package-lock.json.
