Hi, I was going through the documentation on how to create a new app. I tried the code snippet I found. But I keep on getting an error "ERROR: UndefVarError: newapp_webservice not defined".

After searching for a solution, I came across a Reddit post addressing the same issue and solution - https://www.reddit.com/r/Julia/comments/zed4gv/when_i_try_to_crate_a_newapp_webservice_i_get_the/

Could the documentation be updated to reflect the necessary changes (if any), please. Thank you for all you do!

Thanks. The mixup came from the link I was being directed to (https://genieframework.com/docs/genie/tutorials/Developing-MVC-Web-Apps.html) Thanks for the clarification ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

also @Sparky mvc_app and web services are two different things

to create a website and not fullstack app you need to do:

Genie.Generator.newapp_webservice("ServiceName")

MVC is a design pattern. A web service can also use this design pattern

there are other design patterns besides MVC. One I know is MVP(mostly famous in Microsoft asp world):
