Build and Deploy Error

19 April 2017 01:53

My project works fine and I am trying to upload it to our website. When I try to build the project I get the following code which I think is error;

As you see in the deployed file, there is no JS script line has been added and no file is associated with the download for the server. How do I fix this for my project?

It looks like our bug. We will try to fix it to the upcoming release.

Could you attach the simple project, demonstrating the issue?

We could reproduce the issue. I guess, your text editor use wrong encoding type. It should be "UTF-8" but it's not.
Could you try to set encoding type to "UTF-8"? Try to save your files with Sublime Text 2, it uses the "UTF-8" encoding by default.
