Discussion on: How to REALLY set up a React Native environment on Mac

this is a great resource, thank you! However, I'm having trouble when I run $react-native run-ios. my terminal tells me: -bash: react-native: command not found.

clearly I've done something wrong but I'm not sure what.

I'm brand new to React Native.

I think there was a problem with Dev.to's notification system. I kept seeing notifications for my articles, but couldn't actually read their contents. I am sorry for the delay in responding.

I imagine that you've solved this, but you have to install the react native cli with a global flag. Something like npm install react-native-cli -g, but please check the actual command first.
