can't find ts-node dependency

I’m trying to deploy a server written in typescript to Every time I deploy I’m met with this error.

2023-04-27T08:30:26Z [info]sh: 1: ts-node: not found
2023-04-27T08:30:26Z [info][nodemon] failed to start process, “ts-node” exec not found

The problem is that I have ts-node in my dependencies. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m quite new to

Hey @MKelsey looks like ts-node is not installed in your deployed image. Be sure it’s listed in your package.json’s dependencies. If it’s only in devDependencies, it might not get installed, for example, if NODE_ENV=production when your image is built.

Hey @guillaume thanks for the response. I do have it in my dependencies. This is my package.json file.

“puppeteer”: “^19.8.5”,
“supertest”: “^6.3.3”,

Am I doing something wrong? Really appreciate the support!

Maybe try without npx in “start”: “npx nodemon”“start”: “nodemon”.

Or install ts-node globally in your Dockerfile (add RUN npm i -g ts-node)

That seems to have fixed the ts-node issue. Now I’m encountering another problem. I’ll try and sort that one. Thanks @guillaume . I really appreciate it.
