I got the following error when I tried to deploy my app on the device [INFO] : Processing JavaScript files [ERROR] : Failed to parse /Users/Documents/Appcelerator_Studio_Workspace/PRJ/Resources/js/About.js [ERROR] : Unexpected token: eof (undefined) [line 5, column 19564] TRACE | titanium exited with exit code 1 ERROR | Error: ti run exited with error code 1 at ChildProcess.

Its throwing errors on commented lines.

    Hello [~zarirbhesania@gmail.com], Can you attach the codes in "About.js" file. Thanks.
  2. Zarir Bhesania 2015-09-22

    I figured that the compiler is not accepting inline comment "//" in the code. Block comments are accepted. Check the below code: function About() { // About View var _aboutGlobalView = Ti.UI.createScrollView({ top : 0, bottom : 0, left : 0, width : platformWidth, right : 0, backgroundColor : TiFonts.FontStyle('whiteFont'), disableBounce : true }); return _aboutGlobalView; }; module.exports = About;

    The same issue comes on iOS simulator and when trying to deploy the app on my Nexus 4

    Figured out a wierd test case, this error only comes in About.js file in my project. If I remove this file it works fine. If I put it back again it throws an error on the commented line.

    Hello [~zarirbhesania@gmail.com], In your code "backgroundColor : TiFonts.FontStyle('whiteFont')" is causing the error. No such thing as "TiFonts" also u can not set background color like this . Thanks.

    Hi Amimul, Then why this error comes only on about.js file. If I remove this file the app builds fine. I have other files too using this property. *TiFonts.FontStyle('whiteFont')* is basically calling a common function for white font color. Its a require function call.

    Even if I replace this *TiFonts.FontStyle('whiteFont')* with *"#FFFFFF"*, I am still getting a build error.

    I am experiencing this in Android too. Any comments that are: // Some Comment Fail. And I have to convert them to /* Some Comment */ Works fine in earlier versions. This bug occurs only in 5.0.x

    Hello [~zarirbhesania@gmail.com], How are you adding your module to your project?
       var ex = require('About');
       var data = new ex();
    Also, your file name should be "About.js". Check if you put all this right. Thanks.
