Issues Updating Generator

  • if still running old version after update:

    • may need to do a npm cache clean
    • run npm cache clean
    • run npm update -g generator-ll-prototype
  • if still running old version after clear npm cache:

    • run DEBUG=yeoman:* yo
    • in the command line look for responses that begin with yeoman:environment and show the file path to the generator
    • navigate to that location and delete the generator folder
    • run DEBUG=yeoman:* yo
    • there should not be any responses listed now
  • if still running old version after clear npm cache and debug:

    • uninstall generator by running npm uninstall -g generator-ll-prototype
    • reinstall generator by running npm install -g generator-ll-prototype
