@ionic/app-scripts not installed


#1

I am struggling to run my first ionic app, npm doesn’t seem to install the app-script files, what am I doing wrong?


#2

For one thing, posting images of text instead of text.


#3

Ionic is not ready for npm5. Uninstall your node8 and install an older version.


#4

This command should fix the issue:
npm install -g @ionic/app-scripts@latest --save-dev


#5

Thanks, I thought it was my Node version, but wasn’t sure, this confirms it. I will downgrade my node, but Im sure we can close this topic.


#6

This won’t work (yet) on Windows with node8/npm5.
But in general you are right.


#7

No need, we leave these open for future users that have the same problem.

I have a similar issue. I don’t have python, which I guess is fine but the rest? Here is what I get on terminal.

gyp verb which failed code: ‘ENOENT’ }
gyp verb check python checking for Python executable “python” in the PATH
gyp verb which succeeded python /usr/bin/python
gyp verb check python version /usr/bin/python -c "import platform; print(platform.python_version());" returned: "2.7.10\n"
gyp verb get node dir no --target version specified, falling back to host node version: 8.9.3
gyp verb command install [ ‘8.9.3’ ]
gyp verb install input version string "8.9.3"
gyp verb install installing version: 8.9.3
gyp verb install --ensure was passed, so won’t reinstall if already installed
gyp verb install version is already installed, need to check "installVersion"
gyp verb got “installVersion” 9
gyp verb needs “installVersion” 9
gyp verb install version is good

That is what I ran with sudo on my terminal but still same exit with error 1.
Can’t run ionic serve or anything now.
Any idea how to fix this please.


#10

Thanks for suggestion, but I downgraded from nodejs 9.11.1 to 6.14.4 and from npm 6.1.0 to 3.10.10 but I still see this:
[ERROR] ionic-app-scripts command not found.
It seems this ionic@4.3.0 update from 4.2.1 is still a nightmare.
