Create-react-app couldn't generate and has errors

2 answers

I haven't code for a while and want to get back into it. When I tried to run: npx create-react-app my-app, this is what returned to me:

Creating a new React app in /Users/kyhongle/Desktop/my-app.

Installing packages. This might take a couple of minutes.

Installing react, react-dom, and react-scripts with cra-template...

I am not sure how to go from here. Before that I did something, probably shouldn't have, I ran a sudo npm cache clean -f. I think that could have been what causing this problem. If someone can help me reverse this, I would really appreciate it!

The best answer:

The answer is in your trace:

npm ERR! To permanently fix this problem, please run:

npm ERR! sudo chown -R 501:20 "/Users/kyhongle/.npm"

sudo chown -R 501:20 "/Users/kyhongle/.npm" 

And I'm pretty sure you don't need to run npm cache clean -f as sudo, for future reference.

The code EACCES is a permissions error code.

First you can try sudo npx create-react-app my-app.

Or in your stacktrace, try running sudo chown -R 501:20 "/Users/kyhongle/.npm" to recursively change the owner of the directory and it's files.
