Hi there - I'm having a trouble following the tutorial on my Mac. I'm using Python 3.9.6 and pip 22.3.1. When I enter
pip install dagster
, I get
Defaulting to user installation because normal site-packages is not writeable
. Then when I write a python file with
from dagster import asset
it runs fine. But when I try to use the
command in Terminal, it shows:
zsh: command not found: dagster
Does anyone have the same issue and resolve it in the past?

you could try first creating a virtualenv, and see if that works, do you know how to do that?
