Nodestream is not supported by this platform


Hello all,

I’m inheriting a serverless project so I’m not super familiar with the whole framework so my apologies if I missed something obvious. I’m running into an issue and haven’t found a single hit about it on Google. I’ve installed the serverless cli, installed docker and setup my aws auth. However, when trying to deploy the API I’m getting this error message:

Dereks-iMac:Purchases derekmaurer$ sls deploy
Serverless: Generated requirements from /Users/derekmaurer/dev/MocaApps/noisely/Serverless_Backend/Purchases/requirements.txt in /Users/derekmaurer/dev/MocaApps/noisely/Serverless_Backend/Purchases/.serverless/requirements.txt…

Error --------------------------------------------------

nodestream is not supported by this platform

 For debugging logs, run again after setting the "SLS_DEBUG=*" environment variable.

Your Environment Information -----------------------------
OS: darwin
Node Version: 11.11.0
Serverless Version: 1.38.0

Can anyone provide any helpful tips or instructions on how I can fix this?


I’ve just ran into the same problem.

Given I was deploying without issue
When I installed the plugin:

  • serverless-python-requirements

Then I saw the error “nodestream is not supported by this platform” after trying to deploy

I haven’t found a fix yet, but I’ll post if I find anything


Huh, interesting that it only happened to you after installing the severless-python-requirements. I installed that as well, but I wasn’t able to even start the install without installing it because it need a package called “fs-extra”. So you were able to deploy without having the “serverless-python-requirements” package installed?
