When I try to run the
app.js file created by express, I get the following error:
$ node app.js node.js:134 throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick ^ Error: Cannot find module 'express' at Function._resolveFilename (module.js:320:11)
When I type in
express --version I get a return statement of
2.3.3. I used npm to install express. I had to manually make npm using these instructions:
git clone http://github.com/isaacs/npm.git cd npm sudo make install
The error is
Error: Cannot find module 'express'.
Do I need to do something after installing npm and express in order to make express see the modules created by npm?
Express is installed globally. I used the
-g flag to install it.
Edit: When I try
"node -e require.paths" I get:
[ '/home/user/.node_modules', '/home/user/.node_libraries', '/usr/local/lib/node' ]
So, node isn't detecting the npm installation. How do I get node to detect the npm installation?
I had the same problem. This worked for me though:
Seems like npm (now?) installs node modules to
/usr/local/lib/node_modules/ and not
What I did was simply to copy everything from node_modules to node:
sudo cp -r /usr/local/lib/node_modules/* usr/local/lib/node/ and now it seems to be working for me.
Hope this helps you :-)
npm install -g express
Create a new app
cd into app directory
use npm link to resolve modules
npm link express
