I got stuck in Html/CSS Part 3, Lesson 42 Parcel-Deployment

My name is Saqib, I almost completed my HTML/CSS journey but unfortunately I got stucked at Lesson 42 of Part 3 while deploying my website using PARCEL.
I did the same as Mosh described but error appears everytime I run index.html with PARCEL.
I also searched and tried different ways and hacks, but nothing works for me. I’m sharing this problem with you guys because I hope someone has a solution that will work. :slightly_smiling_face:

These are the Errors coming…

Many people are stuck in this part of the course. I tried so many youtube tutorials but always ended up with a problem. I disregarded this part for learning purposes.

I hope this is solved now if any future developers are facing this issue. Please check the URLs (like https:// mistakes) in your code (index.html) so that you can build your website on a local server.


I made spelling mistakes in URLs, and then that was corrected. The build was successful.

deletting .htmlnanorc.js file works for me

I solved it this way:

  1. In the project directory:
    a) Created a file called “.htmlnanorc.js” with content:
    module.exports = {
    minifySvg: false,
    b) Created another file called “.htmlnanorc” with a single line:
    { “minifySvg”: false }
  2. In the Terminal I run the “parcel build index.html” adding “–no-minify” as a parameter:
    “parcel build index.html --no-minify”
  3. In the configuration parameters of Netlify for the deploy, I also write the same command to be executed when building my deploy:
    “parcel build index.html --no-minify”

All problems are gone and now anytime I push to GitHub, Netlify publish my updated site as expected

Hope this will help you all
