View Full Version : How do I get npm open tooling to start using ExtJS 7.0.0 for app creation?

7 Sep 2019, 6:48 AM
I have done a LOT of searching around and I can't find the answer to this simple question: How do I install ExtJS and use it if I already have ExtJS 6.6.0 downloaded and in use with open tooling / npm? I can find no instructions on how to install ExtJS 7 in the open tooling environment if I already have an older version installed. No matter what I do, when I type "ext-gen app -i" it creates the new app using version 6.6.0.

Please note: I do not want to "upgrade" an existing app. I want to install ExtJS 7 so that when I run "ext-gen app -i" it uses ExtJS 7.0.0 to create the new app.

Thank you in advance,

The trick seems to be to update ext-gen. After I did the following, ext-gen app -i utilized ExtJS 7.0.0 to create a new app:

'brew update nodejs'.
'npm install -g npm'
'npm install -g @sencha/ext-gen'
(and a couple of system reboots)
