Yo gang, in this Node JS tutorial for beginners, I’ll show you how we can install a Node package called Nodemon. Nodemon is a great dev package that keeps track of code changes in our application, and restarts the server for us when it detects them (so we don’t have to). Great time saver.

  1. I am running nodemon on Win 10 and I can't figure out how to kill it temporarily. Ctrl + C does not work and my terminal crashes when I try other things. Do you know how to safely kill nodemon?

  2. Thank you so much for educating people on nodejs in such a precise manner.
    I'm a beginner, and I discovered something cool along these lines that I'd like to point out.
    I've started with NetBeans for nodejs development and it has a chrome connector, that takes care of this for you, reflecting changes real time. Just an alternative.

  3. helpful tutorial
    but I have an error called "[nodemon] app crashed – waiting for file changes before starting…"
    I need help

  4. Like the videos a lot so far ! Unsure if needed to install packages globally. An explanation would be nice for pros & cons to doing it. Thanks !

  5. if nodemon gives the 'ENOENT' error when starting the app, and no online solution works for you, try other automation packages. 'Forever' works for me. Great tutorial as usual Ninjaman!
