Updated rhtml template?

Can anyone provide some guidance on building a basic rhtml visual?

 

I'm trying to upgrade one of my custom visuals from the 1.12.0 api to 2.2.2.  I'm ultimately trying to make the jump to v3.0, but am hoping that understanding how to adapt to v2.2 will make the jump to v3.0 easier.  Due to the ugly state of the custom visuals tutorials, I'm in over my head with trying to modify my existing files, so I'm trying to start again from scratch.  I've tried creating a barebones visual following https://github.com/Microsoft/PowerBI-visuals/blob/master/RVisualTutorial/CreateRHTML.md by running:

 

pbiviz new sampleRHTMLVisual -t rhtml
cd sampleRHTMLVisual
pbiviz package

 This then bombs out with:

PS C:\Users\foo\sampleRHTMLVisual> pbiviz package
 info   Building visual...
 info   Start preparing plugin template
(node:22948) DeprecationWarning: Tapable.plugin is deprecated. Use new API on `.hooks` instead
 info   Finish preparing plugin template

Re: Updated rhtml template?

Hello,

 

Probably, you should update Node,js or/and Typescript package.

 

Kind Regards!

Re: Updated rhtml template?

I've updated node and TypeScript, but the problem lies within powerbi-visuals-tools@beta (3.0.12).  I'm able to get the stock visual template to compile and load into Power BI, but I have yet to find a way to get any custom R visuals to render and the rhtml template fails to compile with the provided tools.

Re: Updated rhtml template?

Could you please share a source code?

I can try to build and figure out what is wrong.

 

If you can provide a source code, please send a link or files to pbicvsupport@microsoft.com
