Currently, unpkg is having some major issues, it was happening few days ago and was fixed and assumed would be all good from now on but the same issues are happening again. From what I can tell, its all based around unpkg, since its not really managed anymore.
It’s used in a lot of plugins, and if the website has 502s plugins, then the page won’t load or miss key functionality.
Example of link not working (on bubble.io home page)(in Australia, I don’t think its the whole world) https://unpkg.com/@lottiefiles/lottie-player@latest/dist/lottie-player.js
Please confirm if this is the issue, but as far as I can tell I think it is.
Ive contact the major plugins I use for this app, but the creator of the plugins haven’t been responsive, and since they wont allow access to the code, I cant fix the issue, which is very annoying since its a basic issue. All that needs to be done is change the packages cdn from unpkg to something like jsdeliver
Sorry I don’t usually like to tag people in this, but since this legit cant be fix by the users and only bubble or zeroqode (other plugin cretors), id really appreciate some urgency on this matter. @ZeroqodeSupport@levon @Bubble@josh
yeah, so not sure if your comfortable with network tab. in filter to find unpkg issues, type unpkg
and it will show all network calls using the unpkg URL for cdn. (then I just match name to plugins I’m using.
oh honestly i dont really use lottie much, im just going to delete it.
My only concern is the advance multi uploader, as currently thats mandatory for my app.
But it might be an open source app, if so can be fixed.
Sam here, with Bubble support. We’re aware of the issues with unpkg recently. I want to point out that something like this isn’t as easy at is sounds - both for our team, and for the plugin developers that use unpkg. Here are a few considerations and thoughts on all of this:
There is no silver bullet here - jsdelivr was super quick to jump on the bandwagon to offer their tool as an alternative in online threads that complained about unpkg being down, but we (at bubble) don’t think that they would be 100% reliable under all circumstances
Unpkg is working on top of cloudflare, which is one of the biggest backbones of the internet. Unpkg generally works very well and allows packages to download super quickly (possibly faster than some alternatives)
Cloudflare itself itself doesn’t have 100% reliability either (it had some issues in Miami for a few hours on Friday)
This could be something very silly on Unpkg’s maintainers’ front - maybe they forgot to pay up for extra bandwidth in Australia, or had an oversight in their code for a recent deploy.
They (Unpkg) haven’t been super transparent or responsive, which is a thorn in their side…
We are closely monitoring this situation. For now, our official recommendation is to reach out to your plugin authors and encourage them to swap the dependency if only temporarily while unpkg sorts out their issues.
Please let us know if you have any questions, and submit bug reports for ongoing, consistent issues.
