Weird error - platform or just me?

(Stephen Jones) #1

I’m trying to write a new app, but I keep getting the same error that makes no sense at all. org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
script14559369036652059347334.groovy: 27: unexpected token: ) @ line 27, column 6.
def () {

Line 27 is not what the error message says it is. Now even if I try code that works from another app or create a new app, I get the same error. If I try to delete any of my new unpublished apps, I get an error saying I can’t because it’s installed by a user, which it certainly is not.

Is it just me? Is there a platform issue?

I figured out how to delete my apps. I had to remove the location from the app.

The error above is still occurring no matter what, however.

Can you please share the entire source code if you would like possible help to reproduced and/or debug? …Thanks.

As mentioned above, the source code doesn’t matter. ANY new app I try to create gives the same error, even without any code at all.

I’ll double check this code, but it probably is “just you” :confused:.

I presume you’ve emailed Support? They can check and clear your account of any corruption.

Thanks for taking a look. I will contact support during their chat hours tomorrow, I was just wanting to see if anyone else was having the same issue more than anything.

[off-topic]I’ve been having fun with SmartThings since I got my hub a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve got to say it does seem a bit buggy at times. Hopefully Samsung continues to invest heavily in and improve this product. They seem to have a decent market share, but they could loose it really quickly.[/off-topic]

Yup… Unfortunately, it is quite frequently unstable and that can be understandably very discouraging.

Ww don’t have access to any detailed bug / feature tracking, and just know that some bugs have been around for… years. Overall, each iteration is a few steps forward and a few back… Hopefully the former is bigger than the latter.
