Changing Vue files has no effect

I’m following instructions in Building front-end code, but when I modify apps/settings/src/components/UserList/UserRow.vue while make watch-js is running, I don’t see any of my changes when looking at Settings->Users screen. Also, when I clone vueexample, follow the instructions in, and activate the app from Settings, my screen is blank, and Vue Developer add-on in Chrome does not even detect Vue presence (but at least it detects Vue in the Settings app).

Can somebody help me understand what steps I need to take to see my changes in Vue files. I’d be happy to help update any guide about Vue/PHP/Nextcloud integration based on the reply. It is just not clear for new people how the integration works.

Thank you in advance for your help.

P.S. When I make changes in PHP files, I can see them reflected in the browser. Debugging PHP and plain JS code from PhpStorm also works for me, but working with Vue is a bit of mystery.


For the general NC challenges look:

For access to the NC developer corner have:

Hope this helps.

NB This is the ‘support’ section. Please give the dev section some look.

The latest NC code is already version 18 alpha, it is possible some docs are outdated. Thank you for pointing out the dev section, I’ll take a look.

Your are welcome. It is called agile software development, I presume.

BTW a kind gesture like problem solved (i.e. :white_check_mark:) or a little ACK to one or more of my comments (i.e. click on the heart icon :heart:) would show you are satisfied. This could be a kind gesture and would motivate me like authors of other advice to continue in lending a hand freely…

Maybe you could seek to make a more direct contact with the NC devs?

Please have in mind this is the home user forum only.

Happy hacking.
