APM not working


I can’t seem to get the apm command to work. I’ve checked to make sure they’re installed by going to “install shell commands” and it gives me the message “The shell commands atom and apm are installed.” However, when I go to the command line to type in apm install or apm help it says there are no matches found. Am I doing something wrong here?


The atom and apm commands are installed in /usr/local/bin. If that path isn’t on your PATH, then the commands won’t work.


@apchung I had this same issue with apm install. The solution that worked for me was to go to Atom > Install Command Shell. Once I installed the command shell I was able to run the apm install command through Terminal. Read more about the solution apm install solution at https://github.com/atom/apm.
