One more fun function serialization problem!
Copy code
import { promisify } from "util";
import { execFile as execFileReal } from 'child_process';

const execFile = promisify(execFileReal);
and then in a sns
I'm doing:
Copy code
try {
            const { stdout } = await execFile('curl', args);
            console.log("stdout:", stdout);
            msg.Response = stdout;
, I'm getting:
Copy code
  pulumi:pulumi:Stack (mcurl-typescript-mcurl):
    error: Error serializing '(ev, ctx) => __awaiter(this, void 0, ...': index.ts(137,57)

    '(ev, ctx) => __awaiter(this, void 0, ...': index.ts(137,57): captured
      'execFile', a function defined at
        '(...args) => { const { promise, reso ...': node:child_process(231,9): which captured
          'orig', a function defined at
            function 'execFile': node:child_process(278,17): which captured
              'ArrayIsArray', a function defined at
                function 'isArray': which could not be serialized because
                  it was a native code function.
This seems to suggest that the import from
should just be serialized into an import on the server, no?
Copy code
For the reasons cited previously, modules are captured in a special but intuitive fashion. When a module is captured in code, it is translated into an idiomatic require call in the serialized JavaScript code.
Copy code
This form of module capturing only applies to external modules that are referenced, such as modules that are directly part of Node, or are in the node_modules directory.
Am I missing something?
ahh, bah... I moved the
const execFile = promisify(execFileReal);
into the callback, and that fixed it
is this a bug?
