Nobody here has actually tried Botpress on the new M1 processor, but this was an expected problem.
The native extensions are C/C++ libraries build specifically for each plateform. There’s no currently no extensions built for the new M1 processor and I don’t even know if node-gyp supports building node-bindings for M1 yet.
We’ll sure look into this problem soon, but for now, here are your options:
1 - Emulate an intel processor to run botpress
2 - Try building one of these libraries on your system:
(I would start by trying to build node-svm-napi as I believe its the easiest one)
If you succeed building all of the above, well surely find a way to make Botpress run on M1 processors!
If you’re interested by this challenge and need more instructions on how to do so, let me know!
This would really help us and our community.
