Fix “Unexpected end of JSON input while parsing” – NPM

While trying to run: npx nuxt-create-app, I encountered an error that kept saying, “Unexpected end of JSON input while parsing near blah blah blah …“. I’ve never come up with that error before, and therefore I didn’t have a clue of what may have gone wrong in there. Eventually, I’ve switched to Google and ran a search with the phrase ‘nuxt create app unexpected end of JSON‘;

I’ve found some StackOverflow references that tipped it may have to do with some npm caching issue and suggested cleaning up the npm cache before running nuxt-create-app command. I did that, and it seemed to work.

Below, you can find the respective StackOverflow links for your reference:

If npm cache clean --force doesn’t work. You should try running below commands:

npm cache clean --force
npm update

If that didn’t work either, you may give it another go with the following:

npm cache clean --force
npm cache verify
npm i -g npm

The last command will attempt to update the local NPM installation. Hopefully, these methods will solve your problem if you ever run into a similar situation.

Thanks for reading!
