Generate your admin backend - Probleme a spinner is already running

I encounter an error when generating a new project from a mongo database
error :
√ Creating your project on Forest Admin
√ Testing connection to your database
√ Database is analyzedse
× [“Cannot generate your project.”,“An unexpected error occurred. Please reach out for help in our Developers community ( or create a Github issue with following error:”]
Error: A spinner is already running

How to solve the problem ? Is this an internal problem at ForestAdmin ?

Hello @Vincent :wave:

Thanks for pointing this issue out :pray:

We have been able to detect and reproduce this issue, we are releasing a new version to fix it. Let me get back to you in a minute once the working version is released.

Sorry for the inconvenience,


In the meantime and to unlock the situation, please use the previous version to get through the process by running:

npm install -g forest-cli@3.1.0 -s

Then re run the command to generate your project, you should be ready to go !


Hello @Vincent :wave:
