[ERROR] An error occurred while running npm install (exit code 1):

First sorry if this it is not the category for this, I know is a “Work enviroment” issue. I have two days trying to start with ionic, I was sleepy at the time I was installing node and I had a lot of troubles. I uninstall it and install it like 5 times then I installed ionic and tried to create a Project but. pfff :c this is the error.

PD: I had an .outoftime issue and I modified script.js (I think that was the name) and that fixed that error, but I mentioned just for the case is there a connection.

Probably the fastest way to resolve this would be to find anybody else behind this proxy that is using npm, and asking them what they did.

My mind was centered in search about the “NPM WARN’s” and you were right, the thing is I’m from Venezuela, so I thought, my repositories are located by default, near or in my country or well with a direction like ve.ubuntu, I changed to US and that is the fix for all… I feel stupid xD. Thanks dude!

i have the same problem and i have open a topic for that

i have just started with ionic a week ago and i’m not understanding this proxy error

please help me

and me i did not understand what this proxy error is??

i have same problem and not understand how you resolved. please help us

after run ionic start myApp tabs I had also got same error. but directory created myApp
so i went inside directory and run command npm install and then ionic serve & its work for me.

You can install with npm.
open cmd with Administration Acess
then, npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
after that
npm install --global node-gyp

install install all node-gyp** dependencies by following command

$ npm install --global --production windows-build-tools
and then install the package

$ npm install --global node-gyp

I was updated Windows yesterday night, and I got the same problem.
And I solved this problem, your comment really helped me.
Thank you Rocker619!!

  • Delete the node_modules.
  • Clear the cache using’npm cache clean --verify’.
  • And then npm install again.

Works like a charm for me.

I have the same problem too, still no solution for this, even after deleting my proxy config the same error remains.
