Appium: command not found message thrown in Terminal

Hello All,

First of all I m new to Appium and I want to install it on mac.

I m using Mac : 10.12.4

When I try to install appium 1.6.x using the command “npm install -g appium” in terminal, it throws the below message.

-bash: appium: command not found

Kindly suggest me how to install appium on mac.

@MohanKumar you mix something. when we try to install not existing package we have:

aleks:tmp Aleksei$ npm install -g appiumdedde
npm ERR! code E404
npm ERR! 404 Registry returned 404 for GET on https://registry.npmjs.org/appiumdedde
npm ERR! 404 
npm ERR! 404  'appiumdedde' is not in the npm registry.
...

when we execute in console unknown command we have your result:

aleks:tmp Aleksei$ appiumeed
-bash: appiumeed: command not found

So can u kindly suggest how to install appium using terminal.?

@MohanKumar i suggest in terminal:

brew install node # "or second line if npm is installed"
npm i -g npm
npm install -g appium
npm install wd

Hi All, I have installed appium using desktop version and also sometime back also installed using command prompt in my mac machine but when I am trying to check appium with command as $ where appium
the message is
-bash: where: command not found

what does it mean ? Means appium is not available ? I have to re-install?

Consider where -> which

Still working on 29/04/2021, thanks Aleksei!! Appium Installed successfully.
