I got this error two months back. I tried each and every solution I can probably find.

Check whether you have created multiple React projects on the desktop. I did the same and started facing this issue. Combine all of them inside a single folder to get rid of the error. It worked for me. Please try this if you are making the same mistake.


Based on input and the following steps, I got it working for shopware6 while where a similar error occurred:

Error: Node Sass version 7.0.1 is incompatible with ^4.0.0.

Checking the currently installed node-sass version and uninstalling and installing the "lower" version:

npx node-sass -v results in:
node-sass: 7.0.1
libsass 3.5.5

npm uninstall node-sass
npm install node-sass@4.14.1

npx node-sass -v results in:
node-sass       4.14.1  (Wrapper)       [JavaScript]
libsass         3.5.5   (Sass Compiler) [C/C++]

Before that, I checked the mentioned version numbers in a complete htdocs folder:

.../htdocs$ find . -iname '*package.json*'  | xargs  grep node-sass {}

In the resulting (huge) list, the following node-sass versions are found:

....nistration/Resources/app/administration/node_modules/node-sass/package.json:    "lint": "eslint bin/node-sass lib scripts test",
./vendor/shopware/administration/Resources/app/administration/node_modules/sass-loader/package.json:    "node-sass": "^4.5.0",
grep: {}: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

./vendor/shopware/administration/Resources/app/administration/package.jsonORIG-2021-12-29:    "node-sass": "^7.0.1",

After uninstalling and install node-sass@4.14.1 and changing the marked line from

"node-sass": "^7.0.1",


"node-sass": "^4.0.1",

it compiled and (a shopware6 thing...) succeeded.

There is a lot of misinformation in the replies to this question and it's the first thing to shows up in Google:

If you see this problem in your application, the culprit is NOT the node-sass or Node.js version. It's the sass-loader issue and that's the library you need to upgrade since older versions are not compatible with the newer node-sass.


I got the same issue. At the time of installing 'node-sass', my Node.js version is 15.

After downgrading node version node-12 and installed node-12 related 'node-sass' it's worked fine.

node -v

# Output: v15.2.0

nvm use 12.18.3

Now using node v12.18.3 (npm v6.14.6)

node -v

# Output: v12.8.3

npm install node-sass@4.14.1

To make sure it's working properly, add some abc.sass file. And write styles and import it on the component.


You can simply do npm install node-sass@6.0.

This is because Node.js 16 is compatible with node-sass version 6.0.


You can just switch to sass

in your package.json 

 "node-sass": "npm:sass@^1.49.9",


React still asks for node-sass after removing it and replacing with sass so you can alias it like this and now react will use sass


Just remove the node-sass and install sass instead.

  1. delete node_modules directory.
  2. run yarn remove node-sass
  3. run yarn add sass

or with npm

  1. delete node_modules directory.
  2. run npm uninstall --save node-sass
  3. run npm install --save sass


I figured out this issue using node-sass version 4.14.1 with the following commands.

With npm

npm uninstall node-sass
npm install node-sass@4.14.1

With yarn

yarn remove node-sass
yarn add node-sass@4.14.1


i had the same problem with sass and i run this commands like below but none of them works.

npm uninstall node-sass

npm install sass

so finally i take a look at my package.json and i saw that i installed sass-loader so i'm uninstall and install that and the problem is fixed. you can use commands below for that.

npm uninstall sass-loader

npm install sass-loader


Don't use node-sass anymore

node-sass is deprecated. Instead use sass.

You can uninstall the old and install the new one

npm uninstall node-sass

npm install sass

But if you prefer to use node-sass

You can use the following table to install the appropriate version node-sass for your installed node version which you can check by the command node --version

npm install node-sass@(your version)

Enter image description here


If you want to use SCSS and Sass in your React app, try to do this:

First remove node-sass:

yarn remove node-sass

If you use npm:

npm uninstall node-sass

Then install sass instead of node-sass:

yarn add -D sass


npm i -D sass

Finally your SCSS and Sass files will be correctly compiled!
