nodemon command is not recognized in terminal for node js server

0 votes

I am new to node.js. I am installing npm install nodemon --save. But when I run the server with this nodemon server.js.

In the terminal showing:

nodemon is not recognized as internal or external command, operable program or batch file

enter image description here

the node server.js command is working and started the server, But nodemon command is not working.

npm install -g nodemon 
npm install -g nodemon --save 
npm install --save-dev nodemon 
npm install -g nodemon@debug npm install -g --force nodemon


I don't know how to set the path because of my project location in D drive.

I want to run nodemon server.js. If anybody has an idea please share. Thanks in advance.

You need to install it globally

npm install -g nodemon # or if using yarn yarn global add nodemon

And then it will be available on the path If you want to use the locally installed version, rather than installing globally then you can create a script in your package.json


"scripts": { 
    "serve": "nodemon server.js" 
},
and then use

npm run serve
optionally if using yarn
# without adding serve in package.json 
yarn run nodemon server.js 
# with serve script in package.json 
yarn run serve

npm will then look in your local node_modules folder before looking for the command in your global modules
