I always get this error message when I run "Ionic start project name":

Error message

Running command - failed![ERROR] An error occurred while running npm install (exit code 1):

        throw err;

Try to remove /usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm and reinstall node again. This should work.

I received a similar error and now have it working.

First make sure you have the latest version

brew update

Remove your previous instance of node:

brew uninstall node

Then reinstall the latest version:

brew install node

And then make sure it is symlinked into /usr/local if it isn't already. You would get an error to let you know to complete this step.

brew link --overwrite node

On Mac OS X (10.12.6), I resolved this issue by doing the following:

brew uninstall --force node
brew install node

I then got an error complaining that node postinstall failed, and to rerun brew postinstall node

I then got an error:

permission denied @ rb_sysopen /usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npx

I resolved that error by:

sudo chown -R $(whoami):admin /usr/local/lib/node_modules

And now I don't get this error any more.

Simply follow three steps:

  1. Clear npm cache forcefully forcefully

    npm cache clean -f

  2. Install 'n' package globally using npm:

    npm install -g n

  3. Install from any of three options:

    a. sudo n stable (get the stable version)

    b. sudo n latest (get the latest version of node)

    c. sudo n x.x.x (get the specific version of node)
