NPM run build problem

Dear Treehouse,

Some problem happened to me when I tried to run the build script.

I got this: npm ERR! Failed at the treehouse-babel-template@0.0.1 build script 'babel src -d build'.

I have this in the package.json: "devDependencies": { "babel-cli": "^6.24.1", "babel-preset-es2015": "^6.24.1" }

Any idea what can cause this problem?

Thanks Gergo

I had to install it globaly with:

npm install --global babel-cli

But somehow the package.json is still not working. If I type manually babel src -d build, It creates the build but with npm run It doesn't. Yet :)
