I did a NPM install and it broke my jss start:connected mode. I type jss start:connected and then it errors out. In the Package.json file it errors out on

"start:connected": "scjss-verify-setup && npm-run-all --serial bootstrap:connected --parallel theme-watch start:angular start:watch-components",

The error that shows up 'scjss-verify-setup' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I have attached a pic below that tells what versions I have.

Solution 1:

I suspect it has something to do with the version of JSS that you are using, or perhaps has to do with your operating system or line endings.

I found this discussion on GitHub that mentions the exact error you are experiencing:


The implication of the above is that you may need to update your version of JSS.

Solution 2:

Verify that scjss-verify-setup is defined somewhere.

For example, the main JSS repo, defines the following in jss/packages/sitecore-jss-dev-tools/package.json:

  "bin": {
    "scjss-verify-setup": "./dist/cjs/bin/verify-setup.js"

Verify that the command is defined and that the file it is referencing exists. The safest bet would be to do a "find all" on your entire directory.

Solution 3:

Delete node_modules and run npm install again.

Additional Questions:

  • Which version of JSS are you using?
  • Which version of the JSS-CLI are you using?
  • Which OS are you using?
  • The JSS verion i am using is 13.0.5 and windows 10. The link you provided, that guys is using a mac. Sitecore 9.3
