Topic: MdbValidateDirective was not found

itay pro asked 5 years ago

Running ng build --prod produces a lot of:

WARNING in ./src/app/protected/document/document-expense/document-expense.component.ngfactory.js
99:240-263 "export 'MdbValidateDirective' (imported as 'i4') was not found in 'ng-uikit-pro-standard'

Is it already deprecated completely ?

PS. ng build works locally

Probably it should be enough. You have to check it with the next release.

So deleting package-lock.json should be enough ?

Dear mdb2,

Maybe the old version of ng-uikit-pro-standard dependency is in your project because of package-lock.json file? Probably that's the case.

Best Regards,

After removing nodemodules and npm i the issue resolved

Why do I need to remove node modules on every update ?
