Hi folks - running
npm create sanity@latest -y
- gives unauthorized error as I am not logged in. How am I supposed to be logged in when package is not even installed?

Can you please paste a snippet of exactly what you’re seeing in the terminal? I’m not able to reproduce whether logged in or not and whether the CLI is already installed or not.

I just solved it by pre-installing sanity globally with
npm install sanity -g
but I wish it was in the docs.
