Avoid automatic installation of dependencies on static website

We use pnpm but the static website first installs dependencies with npm. Explicitly specifying the packageManager in the package.json does not have an effect.

You can see from the log here that npm kicks off first and then it runs the build command:

Is there a way to avoid the npm install?

Hi there,

You can use the SKIP_INSTALL_DEPS environment variable. See https://render.com/docs/static-sites#dependency-installation for more information on that.
