and I think that is causing my nodemon to restart.

The cmd window:

file saved
[nodemon] restarting due to changes...
{ ok: 1, nModified: 0, n: 1 }
Anon user added to doc
{ ok: 1, nModified: 1, n: 1 }
[nodemon] starting `node server.js`
listenting on port: 3000

I don't want it to restart when

Also please suggest a solution.


Add the name/s of the file/s you're creating to a file called nodemon.json, and place it at the root of your working folder:

  "ignore": ["*.test.txt", "myfiles/*"],
