Node.js Question

nodemon not found in npm

I have a problem: nodemon does not run off the npm script (e.g.

npm start

but if nodemon is called on the command line outside the npm script, nodemon runs as normal.

$ nodemon server.js
14 Feb 22:59:51 - [nodemon] v1.3.7
14 Feb 22:59:51 - [nodemon] to restart at any time, enter `rs`
14 Feb 22:59:51 - [nodemon] watching: *.*
14 Feb 22:59:51 - [nodemon] starting `node server.js`

How it is called in npm script:


"scripts": {
"start": "nodemon server.js"

When npm start script is run:

$ npm start
> aaa@0.0.1 start /home/akul/Documents/aaa
> nodemon server.js

sh: 1: nodemon: not found

npm ERR! Linux 3.13.0-45-generic

I've been looking for a solution, but have not found one.

You can resolve this problem by adding nodemon to you package.json

npm install nodemon --save

The problem happens when nodemon does not exist in /node_modules/.bin
