Ionic platform add ios error

Hi team

I am having an issue with the following command:

ionic platform add ios

I have been following along with this tutorial

However when I get to point of entering the above command it throws this error message.

Updated the hooks directory to have execute permissions
    throw err;

Error: Cannot find module 'umask'
    at Function.Module._resolveFilename (module.js:337:15)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:287:25)
    at Module.require (module.js:366:17)

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.


I’m guessing you are using a Mac. :smile:

did you try sudo ionic platform add ios ?

also check out:

Having the exact same problem. Can anyone help. yes tried it with sudo and exact same results both for ios and android.

Ok I got it working. What i did was install homebrew and then took node off with it and then reinstalled everything… installing node with homebrew then
$ npm install -g ionic
and then finally
$ npm install -g cordova ionic

and i dont get those errors anymore
