Visual SDK - Gulp Error

Visual SDK - Gulp Error

Hi, I'm trying to build a widget using the Visual SDK on Thingworx 9.

I've already downloaded the required packages from the PTC Software Download page:

  • MED-61347-CD-090_F000_WEB-Component-SDK-Utility.zip
  • ThingWorx_Web_Component_Widget.zip

 

In the official tutorial the steps are 4:

  1. Open a command prompt, then change the current directory to the location on your system where you extracted the SDK utility:

    cd twx-wc-sdk-utility
    
  2. Run the following command to install the utility:

    npm link
    
  3. Change your directory to the simple-el-widget/ folder that you created earlier (previously downloaded and unzipped

    cd simple-el-widget
    
  4. In the widget folder, run the following command to create the extension:

    mub
    

An extension ZIP file is created and placed in the dist/ folder of your working directory. You are now ready to import the extension.

 

But the mub command gives me back this error:

Starting series of gulp tasks for the wrapping...

exec error: Error: Command failed: gulp --e --wd C:\CDM\GitLab Cloud\libraries\thingworx\thingworx-web-component-library\simple-el-widget
[10:12:30] Task never defined: Cloud\libraries\thingworx\thingworx-web-component-library\simple-el-widget
[10:12:30] To list available tasks, try running: gulp --tasks

 

Seems that in the widget folder the gold task file is missing.
There is anyone who already faced this error?

 

thanks,

Alessandro

Hi @AlessandroN ,

 

Looking at the error message, it might be because of the space in the folder name:

gulp --e --wd C:\CDM\GitLab Cloud\libraries\thingworx\thingworx-web-component-library\simple-el-widget

Can you rename the "GitLab Cloud" folder to something else? Like "GitLabCloud" and try again.
