Failing to run script

See original GitHub issue

If you are reporting a bug, please fill in below. Otherwise feel to remove this template entirely.


I’m currently working on issue #750 and to be able to test my changes, i decided that i could run script. But when i run it, it fails on line 98 at the node packages/create-react-app/index.js --scripts-version=$scripts_path "$@" command . I’m trying to figure out what am i missing, but no luck so far. Here’s what i see in log :

++ npm pack
+ scripts_path=/var/folders/zz/zyxvpxvq6csfxvn_n0000000000000/T/tmp.Z0Iimlvq/packages/react-scripts/react-scripts-0.6.0.tgz
+ cd /Users/biercoff/Work/GitHubProjects/create-react-app
+ node packages/create-react-app/index.js --scripts-version=/var/folders/zz/zyxvpxvq6csfxvn_n0000000000000/T/tmp.Z0Iimlvq/packages/react-scripts/react-scripts-0.6.0.tgz
Usage: create-react-app <project-directory> [--verbose]
++ set +x ERROR! An error was encountered executing line 99.
Exiting with error.

Expected behavior

I expect to have a new dummy create-react-app that i could use for my tests.

Actual behavior

I’m getting an error message and i don’t find newly created app build from my changed source code


Run these commands in the project folder and fill in their results:

  1. npm ls react-scripts (if you haven’t ejected):
  2. node -v: v6.4.0
  3. npm -v:3.10.3

Then, specify:

  1. Operating system: Mac OS Sierra
  2. Browser and version: Doesn’t matter. The problem is with the script

Yeap, that worked 😃 Thanks for the help. Will continue working on improving eject.js output.

It exists for that purpose, but it’s not meant to be called directly. It’s meant to be called as npm run create-react-app ../whatever. I’m not sure if it makes a difference though.

Can you reproduce this by running npm run create-react-app ../whatever?
