Solution to zsh: command not found: expo on macOS Catalina
So I recently upgraded to macOS Catalina and all hell broke loose. Many of my command line utilities kept working but I have definitely wasted close to 30 hours trying to fix everything to make it work just like it did in the previous macOS version.
Recently, I am started working on a demo for my talk at the Wordcamp Islamabad and wanted to try the latest tools for building a react native app. So naturally, I wanted to try expo CLI as it gives all the tools needed to work with react native on number of platforms i.e web, iOS and Android.
I installed the expo CLI using the following command:
npm install -g expo-cli
But when I tried to run expo, it gave me this error
zsh: command not found:
Have rarely worked with zsh and not having any command over it, I tried many ways to fix it, including the path of the npm root which I got via:
Apparently, it’s not a reliable way to do it. So I ended up adding
to my ~/.zshrc file. Which solved the problem for good.
Now I can run expo cli with no problem.
Hope this helps others who are stuck like me!
