Is this a bug report?


Did you try recovering your dependencies?



  1. node -v: 8.2.1
  2. npm -v: 5.6.0
  3. yarn --version (if you use Yarn):
  4. npm ls react-scripts (if you haven’t ejected):

Then, specify:

  1. Operating system: macOS 10.13.4
  2. Browser and version (if relevant):

Steps to Reproduce

(Write your steps here:)

  1. Create repo with older version of react-scripts ~1.0.17
  2. Update react-scripts to 1.1.4
  3. Run react-scripts-build

Expected Behavior

Build works.

Actual Behavior

The following error output occurs when running react-scripts build:

> react-scripts build

Creating an optimized production build...
                throw new Error("Chunk.entrypoints: Use Chunks.addGroup instead");

Looking at the dependency tree, react-scripts 1.1.3 depends on extract-text-webpack-plugin@3.0.2, see my output of npm ls extract-text-webpack-plugin

SDGL141befbb9:myapp-ui myuser$ npm list extract-text-webpack-plugin
myapp-ui@0.1.0 /Users/myuser/devel/MyTeam/myapp-ui
└─┬ react-scripts@1.1.4
  └── extract-text-webpack-plugin@3.0.2

In extract-text-plugin on this line we see it accessing chunk.entrypoints (Chunk coming from import Chunk from 'webpack/lib/Chunk';). But if we look at webpack we can see that on this line it throws an error if you try to access chunk.entrypoints.

This sounds like a npm bug, if you rm -rf node_modules and reinstall does it fix this problem?

Looks related to webpack-contrib/extract-text-webpack-plugin#701.

Running npm install -D extract-text-webpack-plugin@next solved the issue locally for me.
