nodemon: command not found

I am trying to run a project [which I built in VS code] in Replit so I can show the output of code as part of my portfolio; however, I cannot fathom for the life of me how to fix the below [I’m quite new to coding], so would be grateful for any advice. I thought it might be a problem with the package.json file [I added “start”: “nodemon index.js”] but still no dice…


npm run start

server@1.0.0 start
nodemon index.js

sh: line 1: nodemon: command not found
exit status 127

It appears that the nodemon command is not found even though you have added "start": "nodemon index.js" to your package.json file.

This could be because nodemon is not installed globally or not installed locally in the project’s directory. Here are some steps you can try:

  1. Install nodemon locally in the project’s directory by running the following command in the terminal:

cssCopy code

npm install nodemon --save-dev

This will install nodemon as a development dependency and add it to the devDependencies section of your package.json file.
2. Modify your package.json file to use the local nodemon binary by updating the start script to:

jsonCopy code

"start": "node_modules/.bin/nodemon index.js"

This tells the script to use the nodemon binary that is installed in the project’s node_modules folder.
3. Run npm run start again and see if the error is resolved.

If you still encounter the same error, it could be that there is a problem with your Replit environment configuration. You may want to check that nodemon is properly installed and configured in your Replit environment.

Thanks for your help. I followed the steps you outlined, however, we now have a new error…
