Error Occurs With installing .Babelrc

I am currently using atom text editor and gitbash as my terminal. My laptop is a lenovo and supports windows

There is an error that occurs during npm run build. Does anyone know the solution to this issue? The error is below. Thank you.

$ npm run build

minesweeper@1.0.0 build C:\projects\minesweeper
babel src -d lib

Your error message states the problem, a closer look perhaps? Seems like you gave up before reading it.

You were right ionatan. The error turned out to be in the .babelrc file. I had too much code in there. When I deleted the extra code. I forgot to savevthe file again. So when I typed the command npm run build. I was looking at the updated .babelrc file. when I closed everything and reopened the file I realized I did not save the updated code. I did this with the help of some codecademy advisors.
