I am trying to create a custom app and some custom doctypes in Frappe and have it show up on Desk.
I have read the documentation and seen numerous questions and answers regarding but I am unable to follow any (for lack of completeness). I followed the documentation using library_management app as an example. At some point the documentation here Not Found says to create a document from ‘Desk Page’ doctype, a doctype which does not exist in my installation. Now I am completely lost and stuck.
I did the following:
Installed Frappe, using Easy Install with --production --without-erpnext (pulls version 12)
Added “developer_mode”: 1 to site_config.json
Created and installed custom app (my_app) to my site
Created custom doctypes in my_app module
Created my_app.py in /my_app/my_app/config and added my custom doctypes
Run bench build, migrate, clear-cache
Non of my doctypes appear on Desk.
What am I missing here please. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I don’t get your step #5. all files are automatically created, you just edit them. You do not need to add anything.
Are your doctype coming when looking for them in the Global search bar?
What happens when you do
sudo bench update?
