Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Creating C++ Projects invokes Mono on OS X which fails to find .bash_profile

When I go to create a new project, and I choose to create a C++ project over Blueprint I get the following error from mono:

Failed to generate project files. Log output:

(I've changed my username to "username" so you might see "/Users/username")

I'm not sure how to get around this, or why it's got such a dependency on .bash_profile, I use zsh, so I have a .zshrc instead - is this going to be a problem? Do I just need to create a dummy file? Is there some setting I'm missing that I should be using instead?

That's very weird. We've had this bug very briefly, but that was before we released 4.7 and now we're checking if .bash_profile exists before we try reading it. What version of the engine you're using exactly?

Currently I'm using 4.7.2. I just installed it the engine Tuesday and then ran the update that was available yesterday for it before I started working with it.

OK, thanks. We'll investigate this but in a meantime you should be able to work around this by creating an empty .bash_profile file in your home directory. Sorry for the trouble.

That sounds great! I got a blueprint working to start learning the interface. I wasn't sure if the .bash_profile was actually needed for anything to work or not which is what least me to post this here.
