npm install hangs on loadIdealTree:loadAllDepsIntoIdealTree: sill install loadIdealTree

Go To


I have a Node.js application. When I try to run npm install it hangs with this:

loadIdealTree:loadAllDepsIntoIdealTree: sill install loadIdealTree

npm install --verbose gives me a little extra info:

I came across instances where other people experienced this but the below seemed to resolve their issue. It doesn't fix mine:

npm set registry

Does anybody know what might be wrong?

Had the same issue, and this comment here fixed it for me:

Try to remove 'package-lock.json' file from directory where 'package.json' locate.
