Wierd code on "npm run develop"

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 4.0.3
  • Operating System: Ubuntu 18.04 (LTS) x64
  • Database: PostgreSQL 10.19
  • Node Version: 14.18.2
  • NPM Version: 6.14.15

I’ve been trying to install strapi on a Ubuntu server on DigitalOcean, when I reach the npm run develop commend, the console prints an endless stream of strange characters. Any ideas on what the issue could be? I run the quickstart for SQLlite and Manual and plugged in the PostgreSQL data.

Unfortunately this is not actually a bug per se, but an attack on the part of the colors.js maintainer. Please see this news article if you’d like more information about the situation. The cli-table3 library is currently pinned to v0.6.0, while 0.6.1 already fixed things on cli-table3's side.
