What does the ELIFECYCLE Node.js error mean?

What does ELIFECYCLE mean?

Here’s my app code: https://gist.github.com/samholmes/388ca4552c5936b52c5d

When I run the ‘blast-emails’ command, it will run for a while until shortly crashing with the error:

npm ERR! Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64
npm ERR! argv "/root/.nvm/versions/io.js/v1.6.1/bin/iojs" "/root/.nvm/versions/io.js/v1.6.1/bin/npm" "run" "live"
npm ERR! node v1.6.1
npm ERR! npm  v2.7.1
npm ERR! [email protected] live: `NODE_ENV=production node app.js`
npm ERR! Exit status 137
npm ERR! 
npm ERR! Failed at the [email protected] live script 'NODE_ENV=production node app.js'.
npm ERR! This is most likely a problem with the emailer package,
npm ERR! not with npm itself.
npm ERR! Tell the author that this fails on your system:
npm ERR!     NODE_ENV=production node app.js
npm ERR! You can get their info via:
npm ERR!     npm owner ls emailer
npm ERR! There is likely additional logging output above.

npm ERR! Please include the following file with any support request:
npm ERR!     /apps/emailer/npm-debug.log

The npm-debug.log file is also included in the gist.

I’m looking for one of two answers: What does ELIFECYCLE mean? (or) Why am I getting the error in my application code?
