Metro Bundler process exited with code 1


#1

Have loved using Expo up till now. Apparently there have been changes since I’ve been on it. When starting a new project from the Expo UI, I receive the following “Metro Bundler process exited with code 1”. So I ended up downloading Expo CLI 2.0 by
entering “npm install -g expo-cli” in the terminal and entering “expo init” and/or “expo start” and have gotten no where. All I end up getting from the terminal is “-bash: expo: command not found”. I also end up getting into the folder of the project by using “cd project-name” and then “expo init” and/or “expo start”. That also did not work. Any help would be much appreciated Expo Community.

if you get the error “expo: command not found” not found that means that npm isn’t properly installed on your machine

Hey @vicsmu

In your terminal, what’s the output after typing the command expo --version? As the other reply stated, it’s most likely that the expo CLI was not installed properly.

Thank you @notbrent for the quick reply. My “npm” path is the following “…./.npm-packages/lib/node_modules/npm/bin/npm-cli.js”. In what order should the “npm” be in?

@charliecruzan, after typing “expo - -version” I receive the same output as before “expo: command not found”. Thank you for your assistance. I will now try @notbrent ’s recommendation and hopefully that gets it going.
