Syncing to pavlovia from Psychopy coder

URL of experiment:

Description of the problem:
I opened an experiment from the PsychoPy3 coder (I do not have this experiment in the builder). Then, I pressed the “sync with web project (at” button, and got the following error message.

Traceback (most recent call last):

  • File “C:\Program Files\PsychoPy3\lib\site-packages\psychopy\app\coder\”, line 2724, in onPavloviaSync*
  • pavlovia_ui.syncProject(parent=self, project=self.project)*

  • raise InvalidGitRepositoryError(epath)*
    git.exc.InvalidGitRepositoryError: C:\Program Files\PsychoPy3

I would like to ask:

  1. what is the meaning of the error?
  2. is it possible to sync a project that is written only as code and not in the builder?
    Thank you very much


I think there are two problems:

  1. Indeed, experiments built only with the coder won’t work online; you’ll need to create it with the builder.
  2. There is also some issue with syncing. Try removing the .git folder and sync again.
