Persistent Pkg error


#1

Hi, I’m having a persistent Pkg error while trying to create a new package. Like in other cases I:

  1. Created a new repo Webview.jl
  2. dev https://github.com/joa-quim/Webview.jl
  3. Try to use it

But it annoyingly it insists that the package is not installed when in fact my local copy is exactly equal to the Github repo.

+ Warning: Some packages (indicated with a red arrow) are not downloaded, use `instantiate` to instantiate the current environment

No matter how many times I do what it requests (running instantiate) the error does not go away.

Can’t understand what is the difference with my other (local) packages that work.


#2

This file https://github.com/joa-quim/Webview.jl/blob/master/src/webview.jl has an incorrect name (should be Webview.jl).


#3

Also https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/29938.


#4

Thanks. But actually I only made it work by first cloning the repo and then doing
dev C:\\Users\\j\\.julia\\dev\\Webview

Doing dev URL kept giving me the same error.


#5

You probably had a stale clone (https://github.com/JuliaLang/Pkg.jl/issues/465) so it is likely that removing ~/.julia/clones and then dev URL would work.


#6

Maybe, but had cleaned that dir before (did lots of trials before posting)
