Sage 10 "Acorn" issue?

I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve been diving into Sage10 lately and so far everything has been wonderful. A couple hours ago out of nowhere I start seeing this:

I don’t know where to turn. I was just building a theme and then this happened. I don’t understand what any of this means.

I did completely remove my vendors folder, cleared composer cache and updated composer.

Here’s my composer file. It’s been the same for a few weeks. I haven’t made any changes to it.

In my terminal I am seeing this now after running composer:

> Roots\Acorn\ComposerScripts::postAutoloadDump

What else could I provide that would be helpful?

This is the only other topic that appears to be what I may be experiencing:

I installed a fresh version of Sage10 and I see the following in my terminal but the theme appears to be loading fine. I have no idea what I could have done to mess it up. I wouldn’t mind knowing what could have caused it. Meanwhile I may have to transfer files over to a fresh install.

composer create-project roots/sage my-theme-name dev-10.0.0-dev

Related / same issue:

I have exactly the same issue.

Everything worked fine untill i updated my composer. I think it has something to do with an Roots\Acorn update.

It’s because in your composer.json file it requires "roots/acorn": "dev-main" which will resolve to the new version ‘v2.0.0-alpha.0’ which changed these config files and it thinks your config/assets.php has a key ‘url’ in the array while probarely it has ‘uri’ there.

This commit adds theme support for the new acorn version:

I changed this in my project and everything seems to work right know.


Yeah! That fixed it.

What I’ve did:

  1. config/view.php
    comment out ‘asset’ like this:
'directives' => [
        // 'asset'  => Roots\Acorn\Assets\AssetDirective::class,
  1. config/assets.php
    change the ‘theme’ array to the following:
'theme' => [
            'path' => get_theme_file_path('public'),
            'url' => get_theme_file_uri('public'),
            'assets' => public_path('mix-manifest.json'),

and on top of the file add the use function:

use function Roots\public_path;
  1. change your composer.json file to:
"roots/acorn": "2.0.0-alpha.0",

(maybe 4) remove composer.lock, remove vendor folder and install composer packages again


@joshb ping :wink: hope you get the notification and hopefully this works for you
