Ionic CLI error on getting start

Hi Guys,

I just follow the guide as :

Creating an Ionic 2.x app in /home/tpadmin/tony/tony/myApp based on the sidemenu template.

Installing npm packages (may take a minute or two)…
Error with start undefined
Error Initializing app: There was an error with the spawned command: npminstall
There was an error with the spawned command: npminstall

in npm-debug.log:

I am using nodejs 6.9.4 and npm 3.10.10

anything which i did wrong here?



No one knows about this? or nobody ever starrt a new project?

Creating a new project works fine for me. Do you always get the same error if you try again? Maybe it was just a temporary network problem or something.

hi mirkonasato,

i tried it multiple times and everytime, i get the same error message above. i am not sure if it got to do with network in my office. however, it really has network issue, not sure why other dependecies got downloaded from npm repo.

just to precisely, i start from empty folder and it failed, i removed the created folder and re-run the same command again …

kinda puzzling…

Failes with the same error for me too. However, I started the command prompt with elevated privileges, and ran npm install in the same directory where installation failed. It installed all the node modules and the app also worked. But I am still not able to create a new app in one go using ionic start AppName blank --v2.

update your nodejs to recent version it may help you

Updated to the latest version, did not help.

@samarthagarwal @tonytony1 have you try to update everything (your nodejs, npm, ionic)? I previously had this kind of problem. I kinda reinstall anything (npm uninstall and install again to latest version) and everything works again

Hi Guys,

i tried and actually, i just fresh install my nodejs (v.6.9.4 shipped with npm 3.10.10), ionic v.2.2.1 and cordova v.6.5.0 …

i still have the same problems.

not sure why…

for angular 1 project, it just works from the CLI getting started.



That is what is happening to me also.
Infact i uninstalled it and downloaded the lastest “NPM”, but still giving me the same reply
