Error about possible cyclic module usage after running phx.gen.auth

Hello everyone,

I’ve ran “mix phx.gen.auth” in my new project.

Unfortunately I get an error in VSCode about the created User struct. I haven’t touched anything. The error is the following:

(CompileError) MyApp.Accounts.User.struct/1 is undefined, cannot expand struct MyApp.Accounts.User. Make sure the struct name is correct. If the struct name exists and is correct but it still cannot be found, you likely have cyclic module usage in your code

This error occurs in the Accounts module:

defmodule MyApp.Accounts do
  import Ecto.Query, warn: false
  alias MyApp.Repo

  alias MyApp.Accounts.{User, UserToken, UserNotifier}

  def register_user(attrs) do
    %User{} # <---- ERROR HAPPENS HERE
    |> User.registration_changeset(attrs)
    |> Repo.insert()

The User is a simple Ecto schema…

defmodule MyApp.Accounts.User do
  use Ecto.Schema
  import Ecto.Changeset

  schema "users" do
    field :email, :string
    field :password, :string, virtual: true, redact: true
    field :hashed_password, :string, redact: true
    field :confirmed_at, :naive_datetime


This is only an error in VSCode. The server is running fine so far.

I have the feeling that this error is blocking the linting because the linting and autocompletion doesn’t work properly for me in VSCode when I write tests or try to rename functions for example.

Oh I’m using Arch btw :wink:
