RC.0 Ionic serve FATAL ERROR: CALL_AND_RETRY_LAST Allocation failed - process out of memory

When running ionic serve after a couple of builds, it crashes. It’s happening every 15 minutes.
I already did the update for: “@ionic/app-scripts”: “^0.0.23”,

(master) $ ionic info

Your system information:

Cordova CLI: 6.1.1
Gulp version: CLI version 1.2.1
Gulp local:
Ionic Framework Version: 2.0.0-rc.0
Ionic CLI Version: 2.1.0
Ionic App Lib Version: 2.1.0-beta.1
ios-deploy version: 1.5.0
ios-sim version: 3.1.1
OS: Mac OS X El Capitan
Node Version: v4.4.3
Xcode version: Xcode 8.0 Build version 8A218a

I met the same issue multiple times in the last day.

Looks like the issue is solved in the master branch of ionic-app-scripts.

You can clone the repo and build it yourself to apply the fix, until they publish a new release:

git clone https://github.com/driftyco/ionic-app-scripts
cd ionic-app-scripts
npm i
npm run build

Then copy all files/folders except node_modules and src to your project, under: node_modules/@ionic/app-scripts/.

Alternatively, you can download the package that I just compiled: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/35313543/ionic-app-scripts-0.0.27.tgz

I just applied this fix and it seems to be working good so far.


Update: I got rid of the Allocation failed - process out of memory error… but I’m still getting Maximum callstack exceeded

UPDATE #2: Nevermind, even using the master branch of ionic-app-scripts doesn’t fix this problem. But it doesn’t happen as often.

Thanks a lot for the response. Seems to be working fine until now.

Unfortunately the problem continues happening.
I deleted the module and put the one you compiled.
