Hi all,

I created a new simulation from template, and added image. When I run 'grunt modulify' from my simulation directory, the required JSON is generated fine for the image, however I get the below error. 

$ cd /phetsims/gravity-sim
$ grunt modulify
Running "modulify" task
modulifying gravity-sim
Fatal error: Perennial task failed:
Error: git log --diff-filter=A --follow --date=short --format=%cd -1 -- js/gravitySimStrings.ts in ../gravity-sim failed with exit code 128
stderr:
fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

Full Error details:
Error: git log --diff-filter=A --follow --date=short --format=%cd -1 -- js/gravitySimStrings.ts in ../gravity-sim failed with exit code 128

Clearly it is pointing out to gravitySimStrings.ts which contains constants for strings used. However, I am unable to understand what I am doing wrong.

Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
Sai Surya

Greetings!  Is `/phetsims/gravity-sim` a git repo?  The modulify task runs some git commands to get metadata about the git status, so is only intended to be run from within a git repo.

Best Regards,
Sam

Thanks Sam, after doing 'init git' error is gone and now saying there are no commits to 'master'. I got the issue and I suppose this error will not impact any json generation of image. I'll add required git stuff and make it error free.

Thanks & Regards,
Sai Surya
