Impossible to install puppeteer nodes

Hello everyone,
I am trying to add a headless browser on my node red server host by home assistant. I tried to install node-red-contrib-puppeteer-new directly from the palette, but an error occurs.

Do you know how to solve the issue ?

Best regards

It’s not compatible with your system

Do you know an alternative way to install it ?

Or an alternative way to have a headless browser through nodered ?

Why do you need a headless browser?
Usually node reds built-in nodes can handle it or command line scripts with curl or wget.

I need it to scrap things on website with some authentification and actions to retrieve datas.

It should still be possible with the existing tools as long as there is no chapta or the like.


Using this “old” thread as I have the error message trying to install any kind of node in my homeassistant nodered via the palette …

If anyone can give me a hand?



You should create a new thread.
It is not likely that your problems are the same.

And by replying to an old thread you most likely only get responses from the ones that participated in the thread and not the entire community.
