I want to make gnocchi without eggs.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Just leave out the egg and use a little bit more potato. I've made vegan gnocchi several times and that's all I did. The starch in the potato will be enough to bind everything together.

My Tuscan neighbor, who made gnocchi every Sunday for about 70 years, never used egg--just potato and enough flour to hold it together. And a plain tomato sauce on top.
