Help with generating sample theia extension


I am new to theia-ide, typescript and javascript. I am trying to get through this docs: Finding this problem

error TS18003: No inputs were found in config file ‘/home/karthik/Projects/training/my-app/hello-world-extension/tsconfig.json’. Specified ‘include’ paths were ‘[“src”]’ and ‘exclude’ paths were ‘[“lib”]’

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Solution found

Just run yo theia-extension

$ yo theia-extension

? The extension's name my-app

? The extension's type hello-world


   create package.json

   create lerna.json

You will get an option to say whether you want to create theia hello-world extension or theia widget extension

@thebuzzycoder so docs are wrong? please file an issue to fix them: PRs are welcomed as well
