I am all of a sudden getting zsh: command not found: sanity when trying to work with the CLI. I uninstalled the CLI and reinstalled it, still no luck. Any help?

A quick unblocker is to run
npx @sanity/cli [COMMAND]
What do you get if you run

echo $PATH

When I run $PATH I get /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin

Ok, so I completely uninstalled node and then reinstalled it and i'm still getting the same issue after trying to install sanity CLI... I can't do anything without using npx

Does other global commands work?

No, I've done something somewhere wrong, nothing is working now 😬😬

This sometimes happens 😕 What happens now when you run commands?

Lots of errors, sanity cli won't even install.... I was having issues in other places than just sanity cli yesterday. Not sure what to do

What does the errors say?
Jan 29, 2022, 6:05 PM
So, I got really frustrated because a lot of other errors were happening and so I just totally wiped my computer and started fresh entirely. Everything works now! A little drastic, but it was driving me crazy

😅 I’m glad it’s working again

Thanks for all your help!
