I installed Slither in my directorySlither Installed

However, when I enter slither . or slither hello.sol Doesn't work.

I checked to see if it was the $PATH for python in my Mac and I think that is the issue. I don't know which $PATH I should set so that Slither runs.

Here's some info that could be useful and specific for this:

  • From the error message it appears to be installed in /Users/david/Library/Python/3.8/. I'd check for the slither command in a subdirectory.

I had the same error, to solve it ran the following installation command inside the vscode terminal instead of running it in the normal mac terminal:

pip3 install slither-analyzer
