I recently update Swanky Suite latest version @astar-network/swanky-cli/0.2.1 darwin-x64 node-v16.14.0. I create new project with swanky init my_project but throws Error Installing dependencies. Is there any issue in latest release? or I am doing something wrong? I also compile the project and error Error: command compile not found. enter image description here

I had the same issue. Upgrade your NodeJS version to v18.10.0.

Only dependency is swanky itself. Can you check the package.json in the newly created project, and what happens if you run yarn (npm i) manually?

The compile command has been updated. It is now under contract command. So the correct way to call it is: swanky contract compile flipper
