Pluggable widget development error


I started the “Build a Text Box Pluggable Widget: Part 1” How-to and got to the 3.3.3 point. After I type the “npm run dev” command I get the following errors:

Running MX Widget Tools script: "start:ts"
npm ERR! missing script: start:ts
npm ERR!
npm ERR! Did you mean this?
npm ERR!     start

npm ERR! A complete log of this run can be found in:

npm ERR! Exit status 1
npm ERR!
npm ERR! Failed at the textbox@1.0.0 dev script.
npm ERR! This is probably not a problem with npm. There is likely additional logging output above.

below is the error log:

Yeoman (npm install yo -g) and Mendix Pluggable Widget Generator (npm install @mendix/generator-widget -g) are of course installed.

HI, Thanks for your feedback, we are currently looking for a fix for Windows. Keep updated with the generator subscribing to our Github repo Widget Generator


Hi Sergkei, we've just published a new version of the Widget Tools. Can you please update manually on your generated project?

- Change "@mendix/pluggable-widgets-tools" from "8.0.0" to "8.0.1" in package.json file.

Or simply re-generate using the Widget Generator.

Can you also give us a feedback if its working now?
