I'm trying to run through this tutorial on dapp development with ligo (https://tezos.com/developers/tutorials/nft-ligo-marketplace/) and am running into an error. In the "NFT Marketplace Contract" section, when I try to compile the contract I get the following message:

enter image description here

I tried updating the following commands from the tutorial to the latest version of ligo (0.66.0):

TAQ_LIGO_IMAGE=ligolang/ligo:0.64.2 taq ligo --command "install @ligo/fa"

TAQ_LIGO_IMAGE=ligolang/ligo:0.64.2 taq compile nft.jsligo

I've also got the following (potentially related) problem within vscode:

Any help on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated!!

  • Which version of Taqueria do you use ? What is the return code of "taq ... --command "install @ligo/fa" ? Do you have the esy.json file on your project folder ? Do you have a .ligo folder on your project folder ? Commented Jun 6, 2023 at 6:20
  • Struggling at the same point. Return of TAQ_LIGO_IMAGE=ligolang/ligo:0.64.2 taq ligo --command "install @ligo/fa" is too long to post it here in the comments. Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 8:10
  • The error message indicates that there's a permission issue (for taq) while trying to create directories and temporary files in the .ligo directory. Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 8:22

The tutorial is missing, that you need to create a read and writeable .ligo folder first.


Up-to-date version here : https://github.com/marigold-dev/training-nft-1

The version on tezos.com is old and very painful to update. I will have a look on how to simplify the way to update content on Tezos.com without losing too much time

  • btw : everything here is updated with last ligo version (marigold.dev/learn). Thinking on moving all to Tezos official doc soon Commented Sep 22, 2023 at 12:03
