Ionic Pro: npm run build failed

I have an existing app already in my git repository (BitBucket). It runs fine locally.

I created a new app in the dashboard
I ran this

ionic link --pro-id xxxxxxx
git push ionic master

In the build log it says

Thank you for your help

Ionic Pro is a hosted and closed source service, so there is not much we, the community, can help you with. There is a FAQ and common/known issues at You can - and should - contact support at

That is a bit strange. Do you get the same when you npm install locally on a checkout of that project?

Also post your ionic info output please.

The problem was with my package.json. “name” had a space in it like My App Name i changed it on this thread not to review my true project name. It build now just fine, Thank you.
