Fixing Xcode path

xcrun: error: active developer path (“/Applications/”) does not exist

Ever faced this issue ?

Xcode comes bundled with a set of command line tools which are required by some of other tools like gcc or cmake.

But sometimes due to various reasons like uninstalling Xcode or moving the Xcode application to different path, you might face issues with the Xcode cli.

Best way to fix this ?

You can remove the existing Xcode CLI tools with the below command

sudo rm -rf /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools

Later, you can install the tools again

xcode-select --install

Still facing the issue ?

You can try this command to reset the path

sudo xcode-select --reset
