ThingerESP8266 failed to compile on mac, Lib version 2.16.0 latest

I have installed the thinger.io latest library, I am using the NodeMCU example. The default example does not compile with the library. Below is the failure.

Arduino: 1.8.15 (Mac OS X), Board: “NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module), 80 MHz, Flash, Disabled (new aborts on oom), Disabled, All SSL ciphers (most compatible), 32KB cache + 32KB IRAM (balanced), Use pgm_read macros for IRAM/PROGMEM, 4MB (FS:2MB OTA:~1019KB), 2, v2 Lower Memory, Disabled, None, Only Sketch, 921600”

Error compiling for board NodeMCU 1.0 (ESP-12E Module).

This report would have more information with
“Show verbose output during compilation”
option enabled in File → Preferences.

Try a previous version of thinger library, sometimes that worked for me.
