I've been trying to install LwC locally via nodeJS based on the instructions given here however I get the following error :

$ npx create-lwc-app demo-Lwc npx: installed 1 in 7.837s command not found: create-lwc-app

I've pulled the necessary code from GitHub and saved it within the subfolder where i'm executing the bash command above.

I also added npm folder to my system environment path variables

  • C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\npm

This is probably a simple explanation --- hoping someone can point me in the right direction

System info :

  • Win 10
  • $ npx -v = 6.11.3
  • $ npm -v = 6.11.3
  • $ node -v = v6.11.2

The command is lwc-create-app.

you have create first not lwc.

Should work if you change the order

  • oooh boy --- that was simple (should have seen that--- the readme documentation is incorrect BTW)--- thank u Brett
