this code here is the problem - we cannot run the command you are telling us to for some reason. Does this code work locally?

i just spent 4 hours as well felt like i was going to have a heart attack…i was so frustrated… then I came across CI= npm run build THAT FIXED IT in Build Settings -> Build command: CI= npm run build… I’m just happy it works!

Hey @IvyAjanga,
So so sorry for the long delay here! I was able to find your site based on your deploy log, and I took a look at your settings in the site dashboard here: https://app.netlify.com/sites/awesome-brattain-217bc4/settings/deploys#build-settings

It looks like you have the correct build command there. From there, our buildbots run the command listed (CI= npm run build), which basically says “run whatever is listed as the “build” script in the package.json”, but then get snagged by your package.json, which does not have a build script:

You have “test” but you will need a line that says “build”, so:

  "scripts": {
    "build": "..." <--- you need something in here
    "test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1"
  },

I couldn’t tell what framework you’re using to build, but the framework docs should tell you what that command needs to be. Let us know if there are any other questions and we’ll be happy to help!

Thank you! This was driving me crazy! :pray:
