is it normal to say npm run build a good 500 times?

There is something wrong with your build settings and build script @ItsDave

Can you share the build settings you are using and the build script from your package.json

When you run npm run build, npm executes the command under the scripts > build.

What you have here is a command that is calling itself repeatedly.

sorry to be a complete noob what is the fix for this?

Have you looked at the Create React App documentation or Netlify’s documentation?

You need

scripts: {
  "build": "react-scripts build"

Then npm run build as the build command in the UI.

Legend much lovemuch appreciated

This is the same issue you had previously Issue deploying website build command fauiled:Command failed with exit code 254: npm run build the solution to which was to change the base directory I believe.

If this does not work, you will need to share a public repository.

still no good NftItsDave is now public, all your help is much appreciated from a beginner is not public

NftItsDave is the name of the one i am currently using

Can you provide the link please

absolutely thank you for your time mate GitHub - lemmo-bit/NftItsDave

In your previous thread I suggested searching the forums for nft-minting-app-main as there are multiple threads involving Stripes NFT which all have solutions.

I have already provided the solution to your issue:

The Stripes NFT app is inside the nft-minting-app-main directory inside your repository. You need to set the base directory in the UI to nft-minting-app-main like this:

Edited: to fix error in screenshot.

this was what i did when i got the memory error, thanks again and sorry

Hey @ItsDave

But the build script (as explained above) was calling itself, and that you should change it i.e.
