Sencha Touch 2.2.1 Update from 2.0.x

Few things I encountered as I was updating to the latest version.  Hopefully this can help others:

Error: com.sencha.exceptions.ExProcess: compass process exited with non-zero code:1

  • Make *completely* sure you have ruby 1.9.3 installed and not 2.0.0.  If on windows use this installer.
  • Install compass from gem (ie. gem install compass).  Don’t install from node.js package manager.

Error: File not found or cannot be read: sass/stylesheets/fonts/pictos/pictos-web.woff

Error: Sass::SyntaxError on line [“190”] of C: Undefined variable: “$theme-name”.

  • If you re-used the “&.popular” selector you need to remove it now.

Sencha Touch 2 Showing Old Data After Refresh on Production

I am not totally understanding why even after updating production and seeing the correct delta’s that I am seeing the old site information.

For now: I have figured out that you can clear the local storage in google chrome (very easy to do).

On my andriod device I needed to do the following in the browser url bar:


This would then allow me to see the newest production site.

I am hoping this problem is because I have been messing around and deleting the production base. Guessing I will learn more once I get closer to actually putting it in production!

Sencha Touch Disable Default Caching on JS Files _dc

I didn’t find much documentation on it, though I probably just missed it somewhere 😀  If you are using Ext.Application for building up your Javascript files then you will want to know how to disable the nocache mechanism that is setup by default.  You will notice that the files have *.js?_dc=<insert timestamp number here>.  It’s simple to fix this problem.

enabled: true,

Just add the disableCaching to false and your good to go!
