Uninstall forge client with npm (OS crash on Mac)

Hi there,

I recently installed the forge client on my Mac to have a look at it and do the tutorial for building a cloud app. Unfortunately, after running through the first steps successfully, my Mac is crashing all the time whenever I run any forge command (it all started after running forge tunnel). It restarts directly afterwards, however this is very annoying and I can’t really work with it. I am on the latest Mac OS version 11.0.1, maybe that is related to the issues im facing.

I now wanted to uninstall @forge/cli and install it again with nom. However, I didn’t find a way to uninstall it. Can anyone help with that? I didn’t find anything on the internet how to uninstall forge with npm.

Thanks in advance.


The command to uninstall an npm package its generally just like the install command except you say uninstall. So it would look like this:

npm uninstall -g @forge/cli

Regarding your system crashing when running forge commands perhaps someone from Atlassian can help address that.

Hey @ij-s, if Forge is Crashing when you run the forge tunnel command then that might be a Docker issue since forge uses Docker for tunnelling. Could you perhaps share your relevant crash logs with us?

Hi @ij-s,

Do you mind sharing with us your Mac’s year/model?

Apparently, the new Mac OS 11 is causing some unexpected crashes/freezes when running on older Macs (pre 2015).

Thanks, the uninstall command worked. I successfully uninstalled forge and will try it again with a fresh install. If the crash comes up again I will share the logs here.

My Mac is a MacBook Pro from 2019, so it don’t seems to be related to the issue with older Macs

I now reinstalled forge and tried it again. Unfortunately, the OS crashed again. Here are the log files of the crash, maybe they help to identify what is the problem.
