Can't find the dash-generate-components command

I would like to contribute on dash-core-components but when I run npm run build it shows an error when it runs the script

"build:py_and_r": "dash-generate-components ./src/components dash_core_components -p"

it says that sh: 1: dash-generate-components: not found

:smiley:

Have you got dash installed? dash-generate-components is a command line tool owned by dash.

No I didn’t and I’m not sure what are the exact steps to do it. I just follow the contribution guide. Do you know the exact process of running it locally?

If you have Python and PIP installed you can just do

pip install dash

I guess whoever wrote the guide might have just assumed that people modifying dash-core-components would have dash installed for testing purposes?

For people intrigued by this thread.

this snippet code in setup.py tells why you need to pip install dash. In fact dash-generate-components is just an alias entry point to dash.development.component_generator:cli.

    entry_points={
        "console_scripts": [
            "dash-generate-components ="
            " dash.development.component_generator:cli"
        ],

Do we need to include dash in dev-requirements.txt file ?

can you be more specific on the context? the dev-requirements.txt in .circleci or your own version for dash app?

The dev-requirements.txt. I posted here the steps that I’ve done and the error that I get. I’m still trying to figure out what I missed.

It’s ok now after reinstalling dash with v1.0.0.

Hello,

I have the same problem. I have tried both the latest version of dash and version 1.0.0, and have all those installed via conda. I can find the dash-generate-components file in the Scripts folder, which is in PATH, but cannot call it from the command prompt.
