TYPO3 10 Viewhelper Class Not Found, Fluid Error

There is some small detail I seem to be missing but I just can't find out what it is...

I get this error:

Error: The ViewHelper "<ugh:example>" could not be resolved. Based on your spelling, the system would load the class "TYPO3\Projectname\ViewHelpers\ExampleViewHelper", however this class does not exist. 

I have my own extension called sitepackage, which works without issues.

In my ext_localconf.php I wrote

$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SYS']['fluid']['namespaces']['ugh'] = ['TYPO3\\Projectname\\ViewHelpers'];

Then there's the directory ViewHelpers inside Classes with the file ExampleViewHelper.php

<?php

namespace TYPO3\Projectname\ViewHelpers;

use TYPO3Fluid\Fluid\Core\ViewHelper\AbstractViewHelper;

// etc ... 

I expect it to use like <ugh:example />

What am I missing? Is there something outside of this that I have to do? I'm freaking out about this...

Answer

Your global configuration works, yet PHP is not able to find your TYPO3\Projectname\ViewHelpers\ExampleViewHelper.

I suspect that you have a spelling error or your autoloading information is out of date (assuming a composer-based installation, composer dump-autoload updates it) or you forgot to add your namespace to composer.json (see composer docs or a TYPO3 extension example here).

That said, the usual approach is to add ViewHelper namespaces to the Fluid template directly. See https://docs.typo3.org/m/typo3/book-extbasefluid/10.4/en-us/8-Fluid/8-developing-a-custom-viewhelper.html#importing-namespaces

Without composer

Use TYPO3 InstallTool "rebuild autoload information" or similar to build the class autoloading information. I think ext_emconf.php needs to contain the autoloading information, too.
