Deprecation warning on uninstall

Hi, Thank you for such a wonderful app, I’m enjoying Inkdrop and its plugins. I’m excited and looking forward to new features especially plugins on the Android app! I have a question regarding uninstall.

Bug report

On uninstall via ipm uninstall <plugin> it uninstalls successfully but gives the following warning:

(node:32370) [DEP0005] DeprecationWarning: Buffer() is deprecated due to security and usability issues. Please use the Buffer.alloc(), Buffer.allocUnsafe(), or Buffer.from() methods instead.

I’d just like to know more about this warning and if I should be concerned.
The plugins that I have uninstalled and produced this warning are: sequence-diagrams, spell-checker


  • Platform: (macOS)
  • Platform version: (Mojave/10.14.6)
  • App Version: (4.5.2)

Hi Abdul,

Thank you for the report.
So glad to hear you’re enjoying Inkdrop!

That warning should be not suspicious or a bug.
It does not depend on a plugin but ipm itself because of using kind of outdated dependencies.
I’ll plan to update them.
You can just ignore it for now.
