Our issue currently is that the build system relies on yarn and yarnpkg is currently broken:

And it can't be fixed because it's no longer buildable in Debian either:

As Kali packagers, we really don't like this node ecosystem which is really brittle and next to impossible to package in a clean way and requires lots of efforts to keep it working...

i'm wondering if we should not replace the Kali package with a kaboxer container instead.

@rhertzog - @TJ_Null was filling me in about this issue - would it be possible to touch base on this issue? I don't have a solution yet, but trying to replicate it on my end, and wanted to compare notes.

If so, what medium would be best to do this? Forum DM? Thanks.

@initinfosec Email? Though the main issue is outside of my control so I don't really know what you expect from me. We're trying to package joplin out of the appimage binary release instead of building from source. Not clean but I don't really have a better solution.
