Topic: Error while trying to install admin pro template using npm i git+https://[...]

mklepaczewski free asked 3 years ago

The JS ecosystem is pretty new to me so maybe I'm doing it the wrong way.

Expected behavior

npm install git+https://oauth2:[my token] --save

installs admin-pro

Actual behavior

npm install git+https://oauth2:[token] --save
npm ERR! path C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\t2\node_modules\mdbreact-admin-pro\mdbreact\mdbreact-4.14.0.tgz
npm ERR! code ENOENT

This repo is not maintained to work as a dependency.

It is a working project which you can install, open the react server and edit as you like; you can publish the project and connect with some backed with no changes.

If you want to use only parts of the project, you can copy the components and logic from its code. Remember to install mdbreact as well.

But I recommend using the Admin Template as a project boilerplate and develop the rest of your application inside it.

Starting from v.4.18.1 we including the only build of the mdbreact package. Since mdbreact folder will no longer available.

Also, we update our MDB React Admin Pro every 2 weeks (according to MDBReact release). Once you purchase the MDBReact Admin Pro you can download the newest versions in 12 months.

You can set mdbreact as a dependency using Git.

Hope I could help.

Best regards.

This has been a couple of months. I too have the REACT Admin Pro which I have cut down to do only what I need. I now want to upgrade it to use the newer version of MDB React PRO that has just been released. I want to remove the MDB REACT folder and install it from GIT so as to get the latest.

I am looking for the solution also

Thank you for your reply. I'm trying to import the admin template into another project, so cloning the repo (to best of my knowledge) isn't the way to go, as it becomes unmaintained dependency (due to additional effort required).

Am I doing it the wrong way or is the repo somehow not prepared for this kind of use?

Hi there,

Admin template is ready to use project with routes and views etc. You just need to:

  1. clone the repository or download the zip file
  2. open the containing folder in console
  3. run npm install to install all dependencies
  4. and you're ready to go
  5. hit npm start to run the project on port 3000

If you will need any further help, do not hesitate to ask me :)
