I am new to strapi and want to start it on development mode. Below are steps I have followed so far

git clone
cd strapi
npm run setup

but then while generating a project somewhere else using the development mode: i am getting error on running below command as

'strapi' is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file.

strapi new myDevProject --dev

any help? I have uninstalled strapi global as documentation pointed. Anything I am missing. Do I need to install non global version of strapi in the same directory.


After pull repository and install strapi@beta globally you need generate new project by command like in the bellow instructions:

  1. Create a new project

    strapi new my-project
  2. Start your project

    cd my-project
    strapi develop


I proposse you read Quick Start Guide

Cannot Start Project In Development Mode · Issue #1768 · strapi , monogodb v4.0.1 Operating system: macOS High Sierra What is the current behavior? Trying to start the strapi in plugin development mode, . Install strapi cd repositories/strapi && npm run setup:build; In another folder create a dev app mkdir sandbox && cd sandbox && strapi new my-app --dev; Usually I remove the settings-manager in dev mode so webpack doesn't complain : cd my-app && rm -r plugins/settings-manager; Launch the servers : cd my-app && strapi start

You can install Strapi globally in your machine using npm without the need of pulling the repo manually:

npm install -g strapi@beta

Restart your terminal, then run:

strapi new [project_name] --quickstart

Then your project will start automatically :)

  • It sounds to me that you might need to setup your path to find Strapi. How to update your path is different depending on your operation system. e.i. PATH=$PATH:/path/to/strapi/bin
