Installing sample-app-web gives error

I tried the same thing on ubuntu 18.04 and still the same errors. Please advise.

The new version (1.7.4, aka the breaking version) seems to overload the inotify watchers limit that is preset on ubuntu.

This seems to resolve the issue:
https://github.com/guard/listen/wiki/Increasing-the-amount-of-inotify-watchers#the-technical-details

Please follow the instructions at that link, but in case that link doesn’t work, here are the commands to fix it:

# echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf
# sudo sysctl -p

Hope this is helpful to someone else.

Hi folks,

I’ve got the error on Ubuntu 18.04-4 LTS with inotify watchers set to 1048576. Is here any other thing that I should consider?

I am using version 1.7.6 sample websdk.

When I was dealing with this installation, I got a lot of errors that all looked similar and had to debug them one at a time. What is the exact error you are getting?

Also, did you look at the debug log file at the end of the error to see if there were any clues in there?

I am getting the same error what you got (12 days ago).

Here is the error debug log file:

Hey @emadridm,

What script are you running that throws this error?

Did you try what @ZoomFan suggested above?

Hi everyone!
I’m getting the same error when trying to install the Local Sample
I’ve followed this link’s instructions.
https://marketplace.zoom.us/docs/sdk/native-sdks/web/reference
I’ve added my key and secret string (Developer Marketplace) on index.js
Then I’ve tried:

npm install @zoomus/websdk@1.7.6

echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf

sudo sysctl -p

npm install http-server -g

but I’m still gettings these errors

Hey @s6pamend,

Can you try just running http-server and navigating to the localhost url?

Thanks,
Tommy

Hey @smadamshetty,

Please provide steps to reproduce your issue.

Thanks,
Tommy

npm run start

if directly run following command on terminal then it was working

sudo webpack-dev-server --config webpack.config.dev.js --watch

Hey @smadamshetty,

Happy to hear you got it working! We will investigate why the script was not working.

Thanks,

I have the same issue. I am running Ubuntu 20.04. I tried running the sample app using node 14 and 10. The suggested fix results in the same error.

Hey @damian.owerko,

Can you just try opening the index.html file to use the Web SDK?

Thanks,
Tommy

I submitted a Pull Request on Github that fixes this issue: https://github.com/zoom/sample-app-web/pull/24

Can you review this, or direct it to somebody who can?

Hey @roger,

Thanks for contributing to the Web SDK! We will review your pull request. :slight_smile: (CS-2220)

The issue only seems to occur with Linux based systems. I can run it fine on my windows machine but it fails on Linux. Is there any official fix yet?

Hey @gautamsharma2590,

This will be addressed in a future release. Thanks again for raising this with us!

Thanks,
Will

Hey @gautamsharma2590, @ZoomFan, @roger, @smadamshetty, @emadridm, @s6pamend, @damian.owerko,

The start script is now fixed in the sample app! :slight_smile:

Thanks,
Tommy
