I am trying to do the off-platform project for the restaurants (https://www.codecademy.com/content-items/adf6a0dee5abf33f002707e9647446df), but I keep getting an error with the boilerplate provided by Codecademy. It seems that Nodemon is not recognized. I have tried to install the dependencies from the solution folder, but I keep getting the same errors. I even tried running the solution code, but the error persisted.
Have you first navigated to the backend folder before running “npm install” ? I just tested it and it worked for me. The front-end part wouldn’t run for me actually without tweaking some things. Tag me if you need help with the front end.
Thanks for taking your time. Yes, I confirm that I have run “npm install” in the back end, and I am still getting the same error. I am not sure what is causing it, but it seems to be related to the nodemon library.
I have a hunch that your directory name could be throwing off MINGW. Notice how the error message lists the directory starting with “back” which occurs directly after the ampersand (&) character. I wonder if it would work if you renamed that folder. Or you could try PowerShell instead of MINGW. The basic commands are the same. I don’t have MINGW installed, so I can’t test it, but PowerShell works for mine even after I inserted an & into my directory.
