XF 2.0 Addon not building


Well-known member
After making some code changes, the addon.json was updated to the new version_id, new version_string.

I ran this in the terminal; however, no zip was written.

Building release ZIP.

Writing release ZIP to /Users/layneheiny/Documents/Sites/xenword2018/community/src/addons/TRN/XenLate/_releases.

What should I check to see why nothing is written? Am I supposed to run something else first?

I ended up making a copy of the addon folder, deleting the original, and copying back the files.
