I am new to Shopify theme development. Currently following the tutorial by Shopify. Everything was going smoothly but I am getting the following error every time I run "Shopify theme serve":

[Note] You cannot use gems with Shopify CLI.
[LoadError] cannot load such file -- wdm
       They are disabled.
       Please don't modify the CLI locally.
       If you would like to contribute to the CLI project, please refer to
       https://github.com/Shopify/shopify-cli/blob/main/.github/CONTRIBUTING.md

  Please add the following to your Gemfile to avoid polling for changes:
    gem 'wdm', '>= 0.1.0' if Gem.win_platform?
X You are not authorized to edit themes on banana-man-co.myshopify.com.
Make sure you are a user of that store, and allowed to edit themes.


Also, I know it says I am not authorized to edit themes but I am pretty sure that I am logged in as the admin. Anybody know how to fix this?

Hi.

 

I had the same error in my terminal.

.... So, I log out (shopify logout) and login again (shopify login --store=https://your-store.myshopify.com)

And now, everything is ok

Always Be Creative.

I've tried everything that i can figure out so far and STILL have the same problem.. I'm the sole owner and logged out and back in .. definitely could use some help.

edit: So after i replied initially, it did end up working and i had to log out completely of my dashboard and log back into my store through the web first , then i had to log back in through Shopify CLI, i hope this helps.. it took me a bunch of times of logging in and back out of both the web and the CLI but it will work eventually.

@haroldao @Sjois @dev-dot Have you any progress on your issue? I can't run "shopify theme serve" with same reason. Please help me if you have solved this issue.

Run gem install wdm on the command prompt.

Then you won't see this issue but still see

X You are not authorized to edit themes on banana-man-co.myshopify.com.
Make sure you are a user of that store, and allowed to edit themes.

This issue happens for store owners and it is an active issue on Shoify CLI github page. https://github.com/Shopify/shopify-cli/issues/133.

 

Follow Caution note on https://shopify.dev/themes/tools/cli/getting-started .

See my initial reply above, I edited to describe what worked for me.. I did not have to install anything through brew.
