Known issues

Angular

Apparently, on Angular 6+ versions, the node modules polyfills from webpack are not bundled. To fix your issue with crypto, path, etc. go to

node_modules/@angular-devkit/build-angular/src/angular-cli-files/models/webpack-configs/browser.js and do the following change:

node: { crypto: true, path: true }

Note: this is not a reproducible fix. If you install your modules in a new location, you will lose this change.
