[Windows] applying Patch does not work across machines

See original GitHub issue

We are using yarn and somehow, patch-package works only on the machine that created the patch.

Node: 10.13.0 (dev) / 10.15.1 (Teamcity)
Yarn: 1.13.0
patch-package: 6.0.2

Message in console:

patch-package 6.0.2
Applying patches...

**ERROR** Failed to apply patch for package @turf/difference at path


  This error was caused because patch-package cannot apply the following patch file:


  Try removing node_modules and trying again. If that doesn't work, maybe there was
  an accidental change made to the patch file? Try recreating it by manually
  editing the appropriate files and running:

    patch-package @turf/difference

  If that doesn't work, then it's a bug in patch-package, so please submit a bug
  report. Thanks!

Patch file: @turf+difference+6.0.2.patch

diff --git a/node_modules/@turf/difference/index.js b/node_modules/@turf/difference/index.js
index 89ebe87..a939e3b 100644
--- a/node_modules/@turf/difference/index.js
+++ b/node_modules/@turf/difference/index.js
@@ -80,4 +80,4 @@ function removeEmptyPolygon(geom) {
-module.exports = difference;
+export default difference;

We have this problem with every patch does not matter if its turf/difference or an other one.

could this be an white space problem? let me know if you need more information

Thank you so much @edcoreweb for the reproduction ❤️

I was able to fix the issue affecting that project at least. It should be available in 6.0.4 any minute now.

If anyone else is still having problems feel free to open another issue 🙏
