shiny for python, shiny - cannot execute shiny create .

Hello I am following the instructions for creating a new shiny for python project, I've used Rshiny in the past but it has been a few years since I've done anything major with that. Following the page Installing shiny for python under the running section, the first instruction is to run

shiny create .
This throws an error:

shiny create .
Usage: shiny create [OPTIONS]
Try 'shiny create --help' for help.

Error: Got unexpected extra argument (.)

I installed shiny from conda-forge and I have version installed.
