*Steps To Reproduce:* 1.Run appcd command in terminal
appc appcd restart
*Expected:* Daemon should be restarted *Actual:* The daemon refuses to start and throws error An uncaught exception was thrown! Cannot destructure property filesize of 'undefined' or 'null'. Cannot destructure property filesize of 'undefined' or 'null'. *Note1:* For me when I changed the cli to 7.0.9 ,it worked fine. *Note 2:* For Josh Quick ,this happens with CLI v7.0.9 also and he tried with node v8.9.3 and v10.15.0 ‚Äč It also causes Appc Studio to beach ball forever


  1. Chris Barber 2019-01-25 This error stems from snooplogg@2.x which removed humanize, moment, figures, and pluralize dependencies because there were never used by snooplogg other than simply re-exported. This bloated snooplogg and hence why there were removed. When the Appc Daemon was updated to snooplogg@2.x, the various packages which depended on those former snooplogg dependencies were updated. appcd-logger is the only package that directly depends on snooplogg. When appcd-logger was updated to snooplogg@2.x, it should have been bumped a major version, but instead was only bumped a minor version. Because of this, older versions of the daemon would use appcd-logger@1.1.4 and in turn pulled in snooplogg@2.0.1 which was the version the stripped unused dependencies. To resolve this, appcd-logger@1.x needed to revert the upgrade to snooplogg@2.x. The commit is here: https://github.com/appcelerator/appc-daemon/commit/4814d93a373f47fc6602361c34b0a53d3ea500e2. appcd-logger@1.1.4 has been republished as appcd-logger@2.0.0 Since appcd-logger@1.1.4 cannot be unpublished, so appcd-logger@1.1.3 was re-published as appcd-logger@1.1.5, which makes appcd@1.x happy.
  2. Ewan Harris 2019-01-25 New appc cli @ 7.0.10-master.6 in preprod should contain these fixes . Will verify later
  3. Samir Mohammed 2019-01-25 Verified in 7.0.10-master.6. Unable to se the above uncaught exception and Activity Monitor shows the 'appcd' process.
