Ionic Pro: NPM Error


Am getting this error when building within ionic pro.

Running: npm install
npm ERR! notsup Unsupported platform for ios-deploy@1.9.2: wanted {“os”:“darwin”,“arch”:“any”} (current: {“os”:“linux”,“arch”:“x64”})
npm ERR! notsup Valid OS: darwin
npm ERR! notsup Valid Arch: any
npm ERR! notsup Actual OS: linux
npm ERR! notsup Actual Arch: x64

Anyone encountered this before?

Hey Josh,
Did you find out how to fix this error ?!

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Ran into this today and thought I would share the solution. The issue was that ios-deploy (which will only run on a mac) was included in package.json.

Uninstall the ios-deploy npm package and then the build should work.

Thank you, i’ve removed ios-deploy from package.json and the build worked fine!
