Ripple Beta Error: Please enter a valid application id

Hi, I'm very new to the BB dev world so please have patience with me :smileyhappy:

 

I'm trying to package an app using ripple following the exact steps here:

 

https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/ww_getting_started/creating_a_bb10_app_2007539_...

 

The BB10 version of Ripple (Ripple Beta) is a little different from what's in the docs, but anyway, I get this error:

 

"Oh Snap! Build request failed with message: [ERROR] Error: Please enter a valid application id"

 

The config file does have the id in the widget tag, so I'm kind of stuck.

Any ideas?

 

Thank you.

Re: Ripple Beta Error: Please enter a valid application id

Mmm, weird, I was using exactly the code in the docs.

 

Anyway, any good resources, tutorials (maybe some that really works :smileyhappy: ) where I can learn to do this NOT using Ripple (command line is just fine, I'm on osx ).

 

 

 

Thnx.

Ripple is not working at all for me, too.

It looses configurations, when try to package I always get a "parser error".

 

 

So I ended up using the command line which also gives much more and better error messages.

The procedure is like this:

  • Build your application with your editor of choice (and test the app with Ripple)
  • Then make a Zip file of your application containing all your files (index.htm, css, js etc.)
  • Then call this command:
Windows:

cd C:\Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for TabletOS<x.x.x.x>\
bbwp C:\Path\To\Your\Zip.zip -g [sigpassword] -o C:\Path\To\Your\Outputdir

MAC:

cd "/Developer/SDKs/Research In Motion/BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for TabletOS<x.x.x.x>/"

./bbwp ~/myapp/myarchive.zip -g [sigpassword] -o ~/myapp/output

 

Please refer to this documentation for further info:

https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/ww_developing/compile_ww_app_for_tablets_187...

 

Its basically the same for smartphone apps.
