I am getting
-bash: react-native: command not found error while creating a react-native project.
Below are the additional info
1. brew --version homebrew 0.9.9 2 brew info watchman watchman `enter code here`stable 4.50 /usr/local/Cellar/watchman/4.4.0 3. brew info flow stable 0.24.1 /usr/local/Cellar/flow/0.24.1 4. brew info node stable 6.1.0 /usr/local/Cellar/node/6.1.0 5. npm -version 3.8.6 6. echo $PATH /Users/Ashok/.rbenv/shims:/Users/Ashok/.rbenv/shims:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
I tried the suggested steps from this link but I am still getting the same error.
I don’t have any “npm” directory which they have specified in the solution
Ashoks-MacBook-Pro:share Ashok$ ls aclocal doc info ruby-build zsh autoconf emacs man systemtap
But I found npm file exists in the below location.
I uninstalled react-native and installed it again but I am still facing the same issue.
After adding right path to the PATH variable issue is resolved.
Below are the steps to find the right path.
1. Enter: npm install -g react-native-cli output: /usr/local/Cellar/node/6.1.0/libexec/npm/bin/react-native ->/usr/local/Cellar/node/6.1.0/libexec/npm/lib/node_modules/react-native-cli/index.js/usr/local/Cellar/node/6.1.0/libexec/npm/lib └── email@example.com
from above output you can clearly see the path: /usr/local/Cellar/node/6.1.0/libexec/npm/bin/react-native
export PATH"/usr/local/Cellar/node/6.1.0/libexec/npm/bin:$PATH" react-native init appName cd appName react-native run-ios
if you getting xcrun: error: unable to find utility “simctl” at this stage you can reslove using below steps
XCode -> Preferences -> Locations -> Command Line Tools -> Choose Xcode 7.2.1
You can find original solution from xcrun unable to find simctl
