I'm going through the tutorial on this page: When I run the code for step 1 (run the file to create a new source template). The template file runs, but I am never prompted to give the source a name as the instructions on the webpage indicate. Has something changed in the .sh file? Or could I be missing some vital step?
Ok I think I found my own answer on the alternative tutorial: I had to NPM run the generator file. not "bash"

hmm you should be able to run it using the shell generator. When you ran it the first way, was there anything generated/did the process terminate?

That's what I was trying to confirm. I was trying to locate the template files after the file ran. But I had no reference for what the new source would be named. I also wasn't sure what format it would have used because I was never prompted to select python vs. some other source type.
The Bash terminal did give me some messages. Successful messages indicating that the file had run.
Here's a snippet of the bash terminals output:
message has been deleted

@Tanner Francis you're on a Windows machine right? Don't know for sure... but maybe using the root user or running using

Thanks Marcos! I think I've arrived where I need to for now. Much appreciated. 🙂

FYI: Tanner's workaround link was broken for me, but I was able to npm run generate. (Also needed to npm install plop and npm install uuid.)
