Unable to use a local package

I have a github repo “A” without a Manifest.toml and Project.toml

Spent a lot of time tryingt o figure out how to use it, and ended up with the following flow so far:

  1. Julia REPL
  2. cd to project location (inside the repl)
  3. “]” to activate pkg mode
  4. activate . changes the repl prompts to “(ProjectNamed) pkg>”

The problem:
I’m lost in the sense that st and st --manifest show me the dependencies (that i manually added) but when i run precompile, I see everything failing, and the main culprit for each dep seems to be “Missing source fiile for …”

Please include the error message and the stacktrace. Even if they don’t make sense to you it is usually a necessity for anyone trying to help.

Hi, are you following the expected structure of a julia package? Any folder can be selected as a project, but packages has aditional requirements.

What do you mean by manually added? Your should not see anything with st if you do not have a Manifest.toml; and if you have one then you should be able to run your code with julia --project=. script.jl (if the Manifest.toml is in the same folder).
