Jovo v4 alpha (beta?) feedback


As has been mentioned earlier, Jovo v4 is still under development, but an early version of the documentation is available at and an early version of the code may be installable following the instructions there.

I started trying to follow those instructions, and immediately ran into a problem. npm install -g @jovotech/cli ran. However, when I started to create a new v4 project, I got an error.

C:\Users\keshlam\jovo>jovov4 -v

  $ jovov4 [COMMAND]

  help  display help for jovov4


So it didn’t install successfully. Any advice from the developers on what to try next?


We are aware of this issue and will release a new version today that will eliminate it.


Reinstalling did seem to fix this;.thanks. (Jovo Update can’t because update was one of the missing subcommands.)
