I’am using ember-cli: 3.10.1, node: 10.16.0, os: win32 x64.

Please someone help me, thanks.

Please share the contents of the error.dump.*.log file.

What library are you trying to import using ember-auto-import?

Thanks for your reply @ef4,

First thing is I’m not sure where I use the ember-auto-import and what for, cause I just clone my client’s repo, and where I try to find ‘ember-auto-import’ in the app, I found nothing. But here’s the log, I share the link where I post the log cause the automated spam filter, Akismet, always temporarily hidden my post when I post the log in reply.


It looks like probably ember-cached-shoe uses ember-auto-import to load b2a.

I’m not seeing the original webpack error for some reason, I wonder if we have a windows bug that causes it not to be printed. Hmm.

Do you get any additional output if you set the environment variable AUTO_IMPORT_VERBOSE=true?

Yes, I see in the log that’s all caused by ember-cached-shoe.

How to set the environment variable AUTO_IMPORT_VERBOSE btw?

The log change to be like this if I remove ember-cached-shoe package


How to set the environment variable AUTO_IMPORT_VERBOSE btw?

You can run AUTO_IMPORT_VERSION=true ember b, another fun one is DEBUG=* ember b but beware you get a LOT of output.

In Powershell, you can run


before you run ember s

And FWIW, I confirmed that ember-auto-import does print webpack errors when used on windows, so I still don’t know why you aren’t seeing more useful feedback.

Ya, the problem is the webpack errors when I using ember-cached-shoe, and I need ember-cached-shoe for the router, I’am asking because all of my friends on the same project and using windows can work properly using ember-auto-import.

Is this is only breaking on your machine, have you tried removing all node_modules and reinstalling them? It could be that simple.

I just checked and I can build an app with ember-cached-shoe on windows.

Yes, but I’ve tested it on two devices of mine. I already tried removing all node_modules and reinstalling all of it, I also already tried to downgrade my ember-cli version, node and npm version but still have same result of error.

Did you get any additional console output using AUTO_IMPORT_VERBOSE? That should really cause some additional detail to print.

If anyone’s issue has not been resolved yet…I have a suggestion. I realized that when my auto import threw errors, I moved my ember project outside of my main directory (typically your C:// drive). This actually caused the issue, because it can not find this particular plugin (broccoli-builder I believe). I put my project BACK INTO THE C:// DRIVE (it worked). Once I finally remembered how I resolved this (30 mins to an hour later), I decided to put this in here to help anyone out and for me to have a friendly reminder placed somewhere.

I’ve just received this error, console logging was helpful. I was importing css as advised which breaks the import.

import ‘suneditor/dist/css/suneditor.min.css’

I’ll move it to styles where it belongs.
