[Request] Upgrade NodeJS version to v14 or v16 for Cloudflare Pages deployment

Hi, I attempted to deploy a NuxtJS v3 app via Cloudflare pages.

This is my build settings :

Framework preset : None
Build command : yarn build
Build output directory : .output

I did not set the Framework preset to NuxtJS since I do not have nuxt generate command in package.json.

Also, this is my app’s package.json :

  "private": true,
  "scripts": {
    "dev": "nuxi dev",
    "dev:host": "nuxt dev -h '0' -p 4000",
    "build": "nuxi build",
    "start": "node .output/server/index.mjs",
    "sass": "sass ./assets/scss/styles.scss ./assets/css/main.css -w"
  "devDependencies": {
    "nuxt3": "latest"

However, when building the app, it says error [email protected]: The engine "node" is incompatible with this module. Expected version "^14.16.0 || ^16.11.0 || ^17.0.0". Got "12.18.0".

I guess the NodeJS version is still v12.18.0. It would be great if you can upgrade NodeJS version to v16 (LTS) to avoid an error like this.

Having the same issue

Same issue aswell. Any progress on it?

Same issue. I’m using nextjs and the framework itself even require a version >=12.22.0. 12.18.0 is far too old…

Have you tried working with NODE_VERSION variable to change it to 14/16? https://developers.cloudflare.com/pages/platform/build-configuration

I recall being able to do that but not sure.

As mentioned above you can indeed specify the NODE_VERSION environment variable to change this!

Example (make sure to set for production and previews):

Image updates will come in the future where the default version will be different. There is no ETA for this however.
