Ripple won't pack my App...

Hey Guys!

 

I'm creating my first PB launcher and I'm running into a problem...

Ripple won't pack my app...

 

It gives me only an Error:

"Oh Snap! Build request failed with message: parsererror"

 

Can anyone help me?

Check your config file is valid XML would be my guess?

Re: Ripple won't pack my App...

I had this issue as well - double check your config.xml. I'd made a typo in one of the parameters and Ripple was (quite rightly) choking on it.

 

If you've got a context-sensitive editor it should automatically highlight mismatched tags for you.

 

Cheers,

Re: Ripple won't pack my App...

Just as an aside: I wish Ripple would provide more information about any of the errors it runs into. They're always painfully vague "Oh snap! Crazy error! That's all." and no way of determining where the error is, what line caused it, even what file it's talking about. Very time consuming them to go comb through everything to try to find some obscure (often simple syntax) error.

Re: Ripple won't pack my App...

^^ totally this. It's just calling the SDK behind the scenes - putting the output of the SDK build/sign process underneath the error message would be hugely helpful - at least then you'd know where to look.

Or log it all to a file so we know where to go to find out more information. Either of these would make Ripple hugely more helpful, especially when it comes to hard-to-spot but irritating errors like typos or slightly wrong syntax somewhere.

Cheers,

Re: Ripple won't pack my App...

Hello ruebyi,

 

Today, I met exactly the same problem as yours. Actually I did nothing but copied code from "Getting started". Moreover, while I tried to visit " http://www.blackberry.com/n/widgets/", my browser showed "404-Page not found". I'm not sure if it's normal.

 

Would you please share some tips?

 

Thank you

Re: Ripple won't pack my App...

Re: Ripple won't pack my App...

I agree these errors should be more descriptive to help troubleshoot what the underlying problem is.  I have raised this in the past as a point of concern, and have also filed a feature in Github: https://github.com/blackberry/Ripple-Framework/issues/96

Re: Ripple won't pack my App...

I am having a similar problem but the error I get is

 

"Oh Snap! Build request failed with message: /bin/sh: /Developer/SDKs/Research In Motion/BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.3.1.5/bbwp/bbwp: Not a directory"

 

I'm not really sure what to do here. New developer seeking help

>> "Oh Snap! Build request failed with message: /bin/sh: /Developer/SDKs/Research In Motion/BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.3.1.5/bbwp/bbwp: Not a directory"

 

 

That sounds to me like the SDK path you have entered in the Settings screen is incorrect?

 

Try entering this path instead (no /bbwp at the end)?

 

/Developer/SDKs/Research In Motion/BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.3.1.5
