It is a very hectic task for the development process.
Nodemon is a package for handling this restart process automatically when changes occur in the project file.
nodemon should be installed globally in our system:
Windows system: npm i nodemon -g
Linux system: sudo npm i nodemon -g
Now, let’s check that nodemon has been installed properly to the system by typing the following command in terminal or command prompt:
It will show the version of nodemon as shown in the below screenshot.
Starting node server with nodemon:
