Attempting to get Vim-Plug set up in my MacVim installation. I’ve got the script in ~/vim/autoload and the call to it and my plugins list in my .vimrc. However when I issue PlugInstall the process aborts with this error message:

xcrun: error: invalid active developer path (/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools), missing xcrun at: /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/xcrun


Help appreciated. I am a minimally proficient vim user, a writer not coder.

at a glance it seems possible you need to install xcode, it is the standard way to bootstrap a lot of standard building-stuff-relevant command line tools that vim-plug probably takes for granted, git for example. I don't have a handy link but it should be easy to search for. Also check the mac's app store.

For some executables to run, you need to install Xcode Developer Tools on your Mac. You can do that by typing in a terminal:

$ xcode-select --install

The error shown to you suggests to me that you haven't those tools installed.

Thanks, Alessandro. Yes, I was alerted to that by vim-plug’s developer. I have installed the tools.
