FAIL ionic setup sass


I use last version of NodeJS.

I’m trying to use sass in a new ionic project on Windows 7 :

ionic start Demo blank
cd Demo
ionic setup sass

But i have problems for the last command (ionic setup sass) :

npmnpm WARN package.json demo@1.0.0 No license field.
npm WARN deprecated pangyp@2.3.2: use node-gyp@3+, it does all the things

node-sass@2.1.1 install D:\Datas\Samos\Mobile\Ionic\Demo\node_modules\gulp-sass\node_modules\node-sass
node scripts/install.js

Can not download file from

node-sass@2.1.1 postinstall D:\Datas\Samos\Mobile\Ionic\Demo\node_modules\gulp-sass\node_modules\node-sass
node scripts/build.js

Thanks for your help,


For me it helped the following:

  1. Revert back to node 0.10.40 (use nvm or nvm-windows)
  2. delete the node_modules
  3. folder run npm update

it might work with 0.12.7 but I haven’t tested that option yet.

Also in sack overflow there’s a solution that uses npm rebuild node-sass

hope it helps
