I was currently updating my project from ember-cli 0.1.6 to 0.1.9 and an addon which I added before but don’t need anymore was throwing an error. So, I thought “oh well, how hard could it be to remove an addon?” and tried first
ember uninstall:npm "module-name" - but this command doesn’t exist. OK, so I moved on and did
npm uninstall --save-dev "module-name" which successfully removed the addon from my
node_modules folder, but when I run
ember serve in my project it won’t start because it now tries to find the (unused) addon which is not referenced anywhere in my project.
Does anyone know how to successfully remove a previously installed addon from an ember-cli project?
I once spoke to @erik_bryn (back at emberfest2014 in barcelona) about how I think that the build process is somewhat “magical” and “cumbersome” and why I think a developer should know the internals - this is really a point where I wish I stayed with
ember-app-kit and its
grunt build system where the dev is really the “master” of the source code and not “locked out” when it comes down to build your own project…
