[FIXED] yarn install warning on package has empty message

Issue

I’m running yarn install. Part of the output is as follows:

yarn install v1.10.1
info No lockfile found.
[1/4] Resolving packages...
warning @beaker/webdb > level-browserify > level-js > xtend > object-keys@0.4.0:

The question: What does this warning mean?

Solution

What’s happening here is that object-keys@0.4.0 has been marked as deprecated, but there is no message.

You can see via

npm view object-keys@0.4.0 --json

that there is a deprecated field with an empty string. I’m not sure how npm clients are supposed to treat this but yarn simply checks if deprecated is a string and displays a warning with the provided deprecation message.

Unfortunately, the warning doesn’t say anything about it being about a deprecation and coupled with an empty message, you end up with a mystery warning.
