Ionic pro: npm install --quiet --no-optional breaks my build


#1

the build server uses “npm install --quiet --no-optional”

i found out that when i build locally, and do npm install --quiet (without the --no-optional flag) then my build goes well.

however, it seems with the --no-optional flag, something is skipped and later the build breaks,

how can i debug and/or fix this problem? thanks!


here the build error:

$ npm install --quiet --no-optional

ok “fixed” it by simply adding the (not so) optional dependencies to the package.json…
