Issue With Deployment

edited July 2012 in Packaging Apps
I've encountered the following error when attempting to deploy my Enyo 2.0b5 web app via the script supplied with Bootplate:
build step
{ enyo: '/home/taylor/Dropbox/Pandora_Stuff/jmtk-deploy/enyo/tools/..',
  source: 'package.js',
  'no-alias': true,
  output: '../../build/enyo' }

        throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick

NodeJS is installed (v0.4.9) and I'm using Ubuntu 12.04. Any help is much appreciated.

(On a side note, it might be good to say in the Bootplate wiki that nodejs is required for the deploy script. That was my initial problem until I installed nodejs and got this error.)


  • We only tested these scripts on node 0.6 and later. It looks like 0.6 adds a default argument for the mode in the fs.mkdir and fs.mkdirSync calls. Try changing line 137 of minifier.js to add a "0777" argument after outfolder, e.g.
    fs.mkdirSync(outfolder, 0777);
    or just upgrade your node to a 0.6 or 0.8 stable version.
  • Yeah, you really don't want to be on Node 0.4.x if you don't have to. It's a bit "quirky", and the API has moved on quite a bit since then. If you're just starting out using Node.js, 0.8.1 is probably the version to start with.
  • Thanks guys, updating to 0.8.1 worked. Don't forget to add these things to the wiki! :)

    I'm using node 0.6.12 with Enyo 2.0.1 and I'm seeing a similar problem:

            '/home/tjwebb/workspace/nbt/icf-dte/src/main/webapp/enyo/tools/..' ],
          [ '-enyo',
            '/home/tjwebb/workspace/nbt/icf-dte/src/main/webapp/enyo/tools/..' ] },
      source: undefined }
