Hi,

 

 I am trying to work with Kendo UI Bootstrapper, and I must say I really like the idea behind it.

 The problem is that I get errors like this:

Oops, the server has died!The Bootstrapper server has vanished. This is a bug, most likely, but this window won't be usable anymore. You should close it and restart the Bootstrapper.

Happens when I click on Compile in a new project or when I click on Bundle in another app.

This is the error message I get ( in the console ):

/Users/Mate/Sites/kendo-projects/kendo-bootstrapper/node_modules/less/lib/less/parser/parser.js:117
            imports.contents[fileInfo.filename] = str;
                   ^
TypeError: Cannot read property 'contents' of undefined
    at Object.Parser.parse (/Users/Mate/Sites/kendo-projects/kendo-bootstrapper/node_modules/less/lib/less/parser/parser.js:117:20)
    at /Users/Mate/Sites/kendo-projects/kendo-bootstrapper/lib/files.js:135:24
    at fs.js:334:14
    at FSReqWrap.oncomplete (fs.js:95:15)

 

Any idea why this happens?

Also I can see that Bootstrapper hasn't been updated since 2014. Does this mean that the project won't continue? Is there any other tool out there that does the same things?

 

Best Wishes,
Matt

Hi,

As a Kendo UI Labs project, the Bootstrapper isn't officially supported.  Indeed, there's a bit of rot in there.

This said, I pushed a few fixes and it appears to work now.  The updated code is at https://github.com/kendo-labs/kendo-bootstrapper -- please fetch using Git, make sure to remove the node_modules subdirectory if it exists, and run npm install.

The error you mentioned was due to an API change in a third-party library (LESS).  I also pushed an update to kendo-lint and it works for me with the latest Kendo production build.
