I'm trying to create new jss app for Sitecore 9.3. I have installed sitecore jss-cli version 13.0. When I try to create new jss app using "jss create" command nothing is happening. where in I'm able create an app using the command "npm init sitecore-jss". It looks like create command itself is not available. Node version installed: v18.12.1 JSS CLI version: 13.0.0 npm version: 9.1.2

JSS CLI issue

  • It seems it was something to do with Node version. I was having latest node and npm, But JSS 13 uses lower version of node and npm (required: { node: '>= 10.13.0', npm: '^6.11.0 || ^7.5.6', yarn: '>= 1.13.0' }). post downgrading the node and npm version. I was able to create and run the jss app.

I think this issue is because of the Node js version over the period of time few dependent packages are deprecated. Therefore it does not support the latest node/npm version.

I tried the below steps and it got resolved:

  1. Install node js version 13.14.0
  2. Add jss CLI globally using : npm install -g @sitecore-jss/[email protected]
  3. jss create my-jss-app angular --branch release/13.0.0

enter image description here

  • Thank you @Sumit Helaiya for me installing the node version "10.13.0" helped

As per the Sitecore documentation for JSS, you should run this command before creating the app.

npm i @sitecore-jss/sitecore-jss-cli@<version>

And then run the create command like this.

jss create my-jss-app angular --branch release/13.0.0

And then follow the other steps mentioned in this document.

Refer to this article for more details.


  • I do followed the steps but looks like a node version is the issue, after downgrading the node version to "10.13.0", it worked.
