I'm having a bit of trouble with my Tea Commerce when I try to see a product.
This is what I have installed:
Tea Commerce: 3.2.0
When I click to see a procduct (starterkit product) I get this error:
The type or namespace name 'Variant' does not exist in the namespace 'TeaCommerce.Umbraco.Configuration' (are you missing an assembly reference?)
I've checked that I have the TeaCommerce.Umbraco.Configuration dll i bin and that's okay.
I've looked into the TeaCommerce demo, to se if the product template is the same, and that also okay.
Somebody that can help me out?
Tea Commerce 3.2 changed the namespace for variants.
They now live here:
The starter kit is not updated to latest Tea Commerce and Umbraco. You can do that and make a pull request :)
Even better - how about updating the Starter Kit accordingly to accommodate the newly refactored version 3.2? ;o)
In other words, when may we expect that the Starter Kit reflects the latest version of Tea Commerce?
Until then, I would recommend that you write on the website that the current version of the Starter Kit is partially incompatible with the latest version of Tea commerce.
That would indeed be the best. We just need the time to do it :)
If you want to help you can always make a pull request ;)
I took the easy way and installed TC vers. 3.1.4 and that did the trick.
Starter kit has been updated to Umbraco 7.5.11 and Tea Commerce 3.2 :)
It looks like the starter kit package on https://teacommerce.net/resources/packages/starter-kit/ has not been updated since the source code was fixed in April.
I've been evaluating the various eCommerce alternatives for Umbraco lately and one major issue with the others has been the fact that documentation and support, etc. is not keeping up with Umbraco itself (some parts quite old actually). Tea Commerce has looked good so far in this respect, until I tried the pre-packaged starter kit and got the same compile errors as above ;-)
So is there a moderator around here? ...which could "approve my account"?
That is right that the starter kit is not updated on the Tea Commerce website. That is because that might be removed at a point and the starter kit will only live on github. If you clone the github starter kit project, you will see there is a build folder. That will build a zip file you can install. You can also just download the starter kit from github and press F5 and have it up and running in no time and use it as your starting point or just for reference.
What's the reason for removing the starter kit from your own web site? It seems to be the most logical place to have it. And certainly the easiest way for new customers to try out TeaCommerce I would think.
I went through the process of rebuilding the starter kit and creating a new zip file a few weeks ago. I did get it done, but there were a couple issues in VS. First, Umbraco itself didn't compile unless I made changes to a few cshtml files (they might not be needed, but VS still complained). Second, the https://github.com/TeaCommerce/Starter-kit-for-Umbraco/blob/master/Source/Website/App_Data/packages/installed/installedPackages.config file seemed to be corrupted and had to be fixed.
I am looking forward to using TeaCommerce in our project, but as always am a little nervous when things in a third party library aren't in "tip-top" shape (and full source code isn't available).
Crossing my fingers,
To answer my own question about moderator/approval. Today I posted a message on the Umbraco forum itself, and that triggered the manual approval process. All good now.
The reason is to have more updated code on GitHub - and we don't make a release of the starter kit for every little line of code we change :)
You fixed that - nice. Would you mind make a pull request. That would be awesome!
I think it would be helpful to new users if you do regular releases of it, at least to stay compatible with the latest releases of Umbraco and your own TeaCommerce releases.
I'll see if I can do a pull request when I get back into TeaCommerce next week.
Sorry to slightly boycott this thread, I'm trying to get a Tea Commerce install up and running including the StarterKit for a 7.6 install. I have read through this thread and it seems that you are using Umbraco: 7.5.11, Tea Commerce: 3.2.0 and the StarterKit: 4.1.1.
Could anyone recommend what versions I should be using for this to work?
I use umbraco 7.6.x, Tea Commerce 3.2 and the starter kit from GitHub without much issue.
