      Try run below command in Visual Studio terminal.

      Reference from blog: SAP Fiori tools is generally available. Increase the efficiency of developing SAP Fiori elements apps

      npm i -g @sap/generator-fiori-elements

      Thanks Syed for your interest.

      We can also use Visual Studio Code for SAP UI5 App development but as per my understanding we can deploy them only on SAP Cloud Foundry. Hope this wont restrict you in exploring on Visual Studio Code.

      You can also refer to my blog to start with SAP UI5 app with Visual Studio Code

      Hi i saw a lot of people complaining about they couldn´t install the Yeoman Generator .

      Seems like there is some type of issue with the NPM Package :

       

      NPM%20issue

       

      My recommendation is to wait i couldn´t find  place to get the package that is not official NPM of SAP .

       

      Maybe you can try again tomorrow .

      The solution once is the NPM  up is to run the following commando on the cmd :npm install -g https://npm.sap.com/@sap/generator-fiori-elements

       

      You can do the same also from Yeoman Generator :

      Hello,

       

      I followed all steps of this blog, but I'm getting this issue :

      "npm" is not recognized

      Hi Noureddine,

      This error is because of Node js and npm configuration. Make sure you have configured Nodejs path in the environment variables.
