I appreciate the time you guys are taking to help but would like to ask a favor:
For someone who is just trying to find their way around MAKE I am shocked at the discrepancy of how easy it looks at first glance and the devilish nature of the details. Normally AI can flatten any scripting learing curve easily, but Bard is no help here and even GPT-4 can’t get me out of this mess because of the lack of proper documentation to feed to it.
That being said, I am very glad to have found this community and my plea is this: I condensed my problem to the minimum elements, hoping someone might be able to help work this out start to finish. What is the best practice to order my modules and where exactly am I doing it wrong?
Or is each scenario so different, that trial and error is part of what makes MAKE MAKE?
Hi @neomagic, I recently joined Make too. Honestly the first thing anyone should do is complete the tutorials in the Make Academy, otherwise it’s like knowing that cars exist and how cars look like, but you’ve never driven one on the road before to get to a destination. Sure you can try driving a car without instruction, but it would be way less frustrating if you read more about it first.
Yeah you have to aggregate the module that is generating the extra bundles. In your case the DeepL module is only processing the incoming bundles and not generating additional ones. Its the Iterator module that is receiving 1 bundle as input and producing 3 bundles as output. You always want to aggregate a module that produces more bundles than it receives.
I just wanted to say that it’s fantastic to see that you’ve successfully set things in motion with the assistance of @Stoyan_Vatov and @samliew.
The Academy is, indeed, a great starting point for all the Make newcomers. Additionally, I wanted to share this helpful video on getting started with iterators and array aggregators:
On another note, I am very sorry to hear that our documentation has been a source of frustration for you. Thanks a lot for sharing your valuable feedback with the community I will pass it on to the tech writers’ team so that they can review it and consider potential improvements.
