Node.js Question

Error: ENOENT, open favicon.ico

I am newbie with node and express

I created a express sample project by first writing

express test1

then i did

npm install

For testing the application i am doing node app.js, but i am getting this error

Error: ENOENT, open

I did some googling and i am not sure the solution, this is the demo app from express and should work, i have tired this last week and it was working.

Any insights would be appreciated

Append this line into the initialization section of your app.js:

app.use(favicon(__dirname + '/public/favicon.ico'));

I assume that app.js is in the project directory and favicon file is at public/favicon.ico also relative to the project folder.
