Unable to execute "trunk serve"

I was getting into Rust and looking at these simple instructions for Yew framework (a frontend framework for Rust):

I followed the instructions up until the command

trunk serve --open

However, something somewhere fails.

This is what I'm getting:

This is my Cargo.toml file:

name = "yew-app"
version = "0.1.0"
edition = "2021"

yew = "0.19"

Output after I run rustup target list --installed command:


Machine: M1 Mac (with Apple Silicon chip)

Rust version: 1.60.0

trunk version: 0.15.0

Any help would be appreciated as I'm just getting into Rust and Web Assembly.


  • Fix it by installing wasm-bindgen-cli:

    cargo install --locked wasm-bindgen-cli
