    Default Installing Sencha SDK and Generating the GS App

    Installing Sencha SDK and Generating the GS App


    I recently downloaded the Sencha SDK and the SDK tools. I installed the SDK tools, and unzipped the contents of the file sencha-touch-2.1.0-commercial.zip to my web server. I cd'd into the directory and ran the command given to generate a getting started app, but that didn't work. Upon using the "sencha" command, I receive this message:

    Code:
    abe@Dubai:/var/www/sencha-touch-sdk$ sencha[WARN] The current working directory (/var/www/sencha-touch-sdk) is not a recognized Sencha SDK or application folder. Running in backwards compatible mode.Sencha Command v2.0.0 Beta 3Copyright (c) 2012 Sencha Inc.....followed by all the info on how to structure commands using sencha

    I Googled it, and found out that one of the ways sencha knows that it's the sencha sdk folder is that it contains a hidden file called .sencha, which my sdk directory was missing. After creating a blank .senchasdk file I ran the command again, but this time I got:


    Code:
    abe@Dubai:/var/www/sencha-touch-sdk$ senchanode.js:201 throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick ^Error: Cannot find module '/var/www/sencha-touch-sdk/command/sencha.js'    at Function._resolveFilename (module.js:332:11) at Function._load (module.js:279:25) at Array.0 (module.js:479:10) at EventEmitter._tickCallback (node.js:192:40)

    The interesting thing to me is that it's looking for a "command" directory which doesn't exist in my SDK folder. Is there something wrong with the sdk I downloaded? Or is there a compatibility issue between it and the SDK tools?

    I'm using Ubuntu linux by the way. I hope this isn't as silly of a question as I think it is, I did my best to research the issue. And by the way, I AM able to visit the sencha-touch-sdk directory in my browser and I do see the documentation.

    Forgive me for the messed up formatting for the messages, it's the result of copy-paste from another source besides the terminal window.

    For use with ST 2.1.0, you shouldn't use the SDK Tools but should use Sencha Cmd

    Why thank you good sir, I didn't know that. It's not very clear on the website for beginners as to what software is to be used together
