nodemon app crashed - waiting for file changes before starting

0 votes

The node is crashing when I access the express URL. I am using  a MEAN stack with grunt-nodemon 

Browser console response:

http://localhost:8000/api/users net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

Terminal output:

Mongoose: users.insert({ firstname: 'mike', lastname: 'jones', email:'mike@gmail.com', role: 'admin', password: 'mike', _id: ObjectId("57485c16fc11894b96c28057"), created: new Date("Fri, 27 May 2016 14:39:18 GMT"), __v: 0 })   
user.save success
node crash
[nodemon] app crashed - waiting for file changes before starting...

In this case, the POST request went through, the user was added, then node crashed, but sometimes it crashes before a successful POST. Node also occasionally crashes on the GET request.

gruntfile.js:

module.exports = function(grunt) {
    // Load grunt tasks automatically
    require('load-grunt-tasks')(grunt);

    var pkg = grunt.file.readJSON('package.json');

    var options = {
        paths: {
            app: 'app',
            assets: 'app/assets',

Angular controller function:

  $scope.addUser = function(){

      var user = {
          firstname: $scope.firstname,
          lastname: $scope.lastname,
          email: $scope.email,

          password: $scope.password

      $http.post('/api/userAdd', user ).then(function successCallback(response) {
          $location.path('/users');
      }, function errorCallback(response) {
          console.log('error addding user');
          console.log(response);
      });
  };

Express route:

User = require('../models/user.js');

module.exports = function (app) {

    app.get('/api/users', function (req, res) {

        User.find({}, function (err, users) {
            if ( err ) {
                res.send({
                    message : 'error finding users',
                    success: false
                });
            } else {
                res.json(users);
            }
        });

    });

    app.get('/api/users', function (req, res) {
        User.find({fields: {}}, function (err, docs) {
            res.json(docs);
        });
    });

    app.post('/api/userAdd', function (req, res) {

        var user = new User(req.body);

        user.save( function( err, user ){

            if (err){
                console.log('user.save error');
                console.log(err);
                res.send({
                    success: false
                });
            } else {
                console.log('user.save success');
                res.send({
                    success: true
                });
            }
        });

    });

};
