Answer Source

The issue is /Users/bhushanraut/.npm-packages/bin/ directory is not added to global PATH variable.

You need add that to PATH variable.

Execute the below command in terminal

vi ~/.bash_profile 

This will open the file in vi editor. Append the following line in that file.

export PATH=$PATH:'/Users/bhushanraut/.npm-packages/bin/'

Then save and close the file.

Execute the following command

source ~/.bash_profile 

Now try executing react-native init AwesomeProject command. This should solve the problem.
