Charm create command not working?


I’ve installed charm 2.3.0 and charm-tools 2.2.4 and I’m trying to create a simple charm using command “charm create simple”, is that supposed to still work? I am unable to get it to work, I keep getting this error:

ub16dev:~/charms/layers$ charm create simple

INFO: Using default charm template (reactive-python). To select a different template, use the -t option.

INFO: Generating charm for simple in ./simple

INFO: No simple in apt cache; creating an empty charm instead.

Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated.



Yes, it should work. This seems to be an oversight from the recent switch to Python 3. I created to track it.


Thank you very much cory_fu, I thought I was missing a step somewhere in the installation, much appreciated!


Please try again with the edge channel of the charm snap (2.2.5-rc1).
