Look here:

You probably didn’t “source” the nvm.sh script in your .bashrc script.

And by the way, I think when you use “nvm” then you should NOT use sudo. Using sudo all the time, even when it’s not necessary, will only cause you a lot of headache down the line.

Thanks for the advise leob… i have narrowed down to below error. Trying to check if anyone have any suggestions…

Taking a stab in the dark but the error says it cannot find node. Have you installed node yet?

https://nodejs.org/en/download/


#5

Yes i did…

Arvinds-MacBook-Pro:~ Babu$ node -v
v5.0.0


#6

I found out last night Ionic is not compatible with Node 5.0.0. Not sure if this is 100% of your issue as I wasn’t getting any errors when I figured this was my issues. I suggest you downgrade and try again.

Instructions as per http://stackoverflow.com/a/23569481/158126

$ npm install -g n 
$ n 4.2.1

I was using ubuntu desktop 14.04 so I had installed the android SDK in a different path from the path declared in the $PATH variable of the system so i just copied the files into the same path and run it again and it worked…!!
