Hey, I tried integrating sanity in my react project when I ran
npm create sanity@latest
with the required templates I was getting a
create-sanity is not a recognizable command
. I'm using a Windows system, how could I resolve this?

. Can you explain what you mean by “with the required templates,” please?

Something like this 'npm create sanity@latest -- --template get-started --project 3f9jbmt9 --dataset production --provider google'

Interesting. That should prompt you to install
. Can you please try this command?

npm init sanity@latest -- --template get-started --project 3f9jbmt9 --dataset production --provider google

Still getting the same error.

What if you run
npx create-sanity

This worked! Thank you. I'm using yarn though, will there be any conflicts?

Ah, your original post mentioned npm so that explains the errors.
In that case, going all the way back to the beginning I believe you’ll want to run
yarn create sanity

Well I tried this, it gave me command not found error.

Hey Jonathan,
I prefer to use yarn, too. I normally run the npx command that Geoff gave you, and once I can open the studio in my IDE, I'll install the packages with yarn.
