JQuery + MVC - Invalid Glob Argument - npm run create-bundles - v9.3.0 #9825

dexmox created
  • What is your product version? ANZ Version 9.3.0

  • What is your product type (Angular or MVC)? MVC + JQuery

  • What is product framework type (.net framework or .net core)? .Net Core

Thank you in advance.

Could you please point me in the direction to resolve this issue - was working a few days ago, then suddenly stopped. I am not great with Yarn / NPM / Gulp.

I havent added any packages that I am aware of. I have added two new themes to the bundles.json which are working normally, and created as per the documentation. Deleted yarn.lock and node_modules - re run yarn

I would also be willing to grant you access via teamviewer if you would like to schedule a connection with me - at your convenience, if I cannot provide any additional information to figure out what may be going wrong.

    Hi @dexmox

    Probably some of the npm packages installed a newer minor version during package installation. Could you check installed version of @angular-devkit/build-angular ? If you can't solve this problem, could you share your packge.json content ?

    Hi @ismcagdas ,

    Thank you as always for your assistance.

    I am using the MVC so I am not sure if the @angular-devkit is applicable ?

    As I cannot answer that question my package.json file is as per below :

    This appears to be the same one as the 9.3.0 repo / fresh download if I am not mistaken, git only shows me a few version changes on a few packages.

    I look forward to your response and appeciate all assistance.

    I am sorry I am not too familiar with NPM, Yarn, Gulp.

    I am also still very open to organizing a teamviewer / similar connection if the issue is not obvious / preferable to troubleshoot.

    Hi @ismcagdas ,

    I have located and resolved the issue, Thank you for your time and assistance.

    Somehow a few of the datatables scripts and translations were missing. Once I located this, I placed them back into the correct location and this resolved the issue.

    However, to locate the issue I had to find out where it was getting stuck - Is it possible in future that Gulp could be a bit more verbose to show it could not locate a file to process ?

    Another solution from Gulp would be:

    When an invalid glob is given in globs, throws an error with the message, "Invalid glob argument". To suppress this error, set the allowEmpty option to true.

    Gulp - Explaining Globs

    Avoid using Node's path methods, like path.join, to create globs. On Windows, it produces an invalid glob because Node uses \ as the separator. Also avoid the __dirname global, __filename global, or process.cwd() for the same reasons.

    I also noticed when going through the gulpfile.js and the vynl-fs index.js file these pathing methods are used, not sure if it is much to be concerned with but just thought I would mention it.

    Hi @dexmox

    Glad to hear you fixed your problem. I created an issue about trying to throw better exceptions. ( Thank you.
