but my localhost is working absolutely without any warnings and errors.

Hi there,

Generally Node MODULE_NOT_FOUND errors pop up because of one of two issues:

  • A required package is not specified in the package.json file
  • npm install is not included in the Build Command (via your service’s “Settings” page)

If you are still having issues after looking into these suggestions, please let us know.

Hi! @mike.marinaro I am having the same issue, and have looked into both those solutions, (even including devDependencies in my dependencies, incase that caused it).

My build command is “npm install” as well

Here is the github repo: GitHub - pjtalbot/Dungeons-and-Dragons-5e-condition-tracker

This is a node - express stack

Hi there,

Are you still having any issues with this? It looks like your services are live at the moment. If you have further questions I recommend reaching out to us privately via the Render Dashboard and selecting the service that is impacted so we can best assist you.
