SyntaxError: Unexpected reserved word => prettier/third-party.js

I’m pretty new to Node, npm and webpack. I’m trying to set up a Craft 3 environment with Tailwind css.

Everything worked fine out of the box, but when i run npm run dev i get the following error:

> [email protected] dev /Users//sites/***/www
> gulp dev

/Users/***/sites/***/www/node_modules/prettier/third-party.js:9871
      for await (const place of this.config.searchPlaces) {
          ^^^^^

Answer

As described here : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Statements/for-await…of

This syntax :

for await (const place of this.config.searchPlaces) {
  // ...
}

is available in NodeJS starting version 10.0.0
