I thought I’d have a go at
livebook, so I followed the instructions at Livebook.dev but when I do
livebook server, I get an error:
zsh: command not found: livebook
It looks like maybe
asdf puts things somewhere in the
PATH that is not expected? I can launch the command with the fully qualified location, e.g.
I’m wondering if others have encountered this problem and if maybe a note should be added to the docs?
Thanks for any input!
Have you tried
asdf reshim elixir <version> ? Core | asdf
asdf current return in the directory that you’re trying to run livebook from?
I tried running
asdf reshim elixir 1.13.0-otp-24
It got no errors, but still it doesn’t seem happy:
❯ livebook server
No preset version installed for command livebook
Please install a version by running one of the following:
asdf install elixir 1.13.0-otp-24
I’m confused now more than ever because
asdf current DOES show the same versions installed that I had when I started kicking tires:
❯ asdf current
elixir 1.13.0-otp-24 /path/to/repo/.tool-versions
erlang 24.1.7 /path/to/repo/.tool-versions
nodejs 15.4.0 /path/to/repo/.tool-versions
Based on the path in your first post it looks like you’ve installed livebook in
1.13.2-otp-24 and are trying to run it in
1.13.0-otp-24 which doesn’t have the
livebook command. If you are in a directory where
asdf current reports
1.13.2-otp-24 then you can install livebook inside that elixir version with
mix escript.install hex livebook.
Thank you for your comments. The problem was that my global Elixir version was different than the one used by my particular repo, so the
mix escript.install ended up out of sync with the repo. Or something like that. Anyhow, once my bash profile version matched the Elixir version in the repo, things worked.
