Jekyll 3.4.3 | Error: undefined method `error_mode=' for Liquid::Template:Class


#1

I’m having some trouble to get Jekyll (or Liquid?) running on my Windows box using the Ubuntu Bash WSL-Stuff.

I followed this blogpost http://daverupert.com/2016/04/jekyll-on-windows-with-bash/

Unfortunatly it fails with one warning and one error:

[email protected]:/mnt/d/Temp/my-awesome-site2$ sudo jekyll build
/usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/liquid/htmltags.rb:43: warning: key “index0” is duplicated and overwritten on line 46
Configuration file: /mnt/d/Temp/my-awesome-site2/_config.yml
jekyll 3.4.3 | Error: undefined method `error_mode=’ for Liquid::Template:Class

This is my gem list:

What do I miss? Thanks for any help!

What’s on line 46 of your _config.yml?

/usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/liquid/htmltags.rb:43: warning: key "index0" is duplicated and overwritten on line 46
Configuration file: /mnt/d/Temp/my-awesome-site2/_config.yml

#3

Nothing - it is more or less a blank _config.yml file and has only 34 lines.

# Welcome to Jekyll!
#
# This config file is meant for settings that affect your whole blog, values
# which you are expected to set up once and rarely edit after that. If you find
# yourself editing this file very often, consider using Jekyll's data files
# feature for the data you need to update frequently.
#
# For technical reasons, this file is *NOT* reloaded automatically when you use
# 'bundle exec jekyll serve'. If you change this file, please restart the server process.

# Site settings
# These are used to personalize your new site. If you look in the HTML files,
# you will see them accessed via {{ site.title }}, {{ site.email }}, and so on.
# You can create any custom variable you would like, and they will be accessible
# in the templates via {{ site.myvariable }}.
title: Your awesome title
email: [email protected]
description: > # this means to ignore newlines until "baseurl:"
  Write an awesome description for your new site here. You can edit this
  line in _config.yml. It will appear in your document head meta (for
  Google search results) and in your feed.xml site description.
baseurl: "" # the subpath of your site, e.g. /blog
url: "" # the base hostname & protocol for your site, e.g. http://example.com
twitter_username: jekyllrb
github_username:  jekyll

# Build settings
markdown: kramdown
theme: minima
gems:
  - jekyll-feed
exclude:
  - Gemfile
  - Gemfile.lock

The error also occures when I just have one static index.html in the folder, which should just work (at least it does on GH Pages)

When I do a jekyll build --trace I got this, maybe this is helpful:

I reinstalled the Ubuntu on Windows stuff and did everything again - now it is working. No idea why, but ok for me.


#6

Great to hear you’ve bee able to resolve this because I’m having the exact same issues (albeit w/ Jekyll v3.6.2). May I ask what steps did you take to reinstall WSL?
