Node.js Question

I can´t install nodemon globally, "nodemon" not recognized

i wanna use nodemon for monitoring my node.js app's, then i execute the next line command:

npm install -g nodemon


npm install nodemon -g

When I move to my app folder and try to to

nodemon app.js

The system tells to the next:

"nodemon 'is not recognized as an internal or external command, program or batch file.


Since node prefix is not in the PATH ENV variable , any of the globally installed modules are not getting recognized.

Please try this.

Open cmd prompt

npm config get prefix

append the resulting path to PATH env variable.

Now you should be able to run nodemon from any location.

This is what i have done on my local machine

C:\>npm config get prefix

C:\>set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\npm;
