React application fails to build on app platform Build Error: Out of Memory

I am trying to host my React application on App platform but my build keeps falling with Build Error: Out of Memory but it builds well locally I have been having these issues from time to time it works some times then sometimes it doesn’t work and fails to build on App platform.

I have tried different solutions I could find online including –max_old_space_size=8096 build but to no avail.

if I could find a way to successfully use App platform to host my application my react application that will be helpful.

Hi there,

One thing that you could try out is to use a larger component instance with a little bit more memory:

If this still does not work, is your project open-source? If so can you share it here so I could take a look at the build process?

Best,
