Have you solved this problem? I just have a same problem now.

No I havnt solved that.
Try to start your application with tsnode --respwn instead of Nodemon

Yea i fixed it.

use this solution

The problem is that the render environment is not seeing your ts-node.

now do this
on your codebasa delete and resinstall nodemodules again like this rm -rf node_modules
now install debug with npm install debug

then add a prestart script to your package.json

the prestart script should point to ts-node binary and give it an executable permision like this
chmod +x node_modules/.bin/ts-node.

your start script should be like this

“prestart”: “chmod +x node_modules/.bin/ts-node”,
“start”: “ts-node index.ts”,


“prestart”: “chmod +x node_modules/.bin/ts-node”,
“start”: “nodemon index.ts”,

if you are using nodemon

now redeploy again, this should solve your problem,

thank you.

let me know if you have any other issue.

the chmod +x in front of the ts-node binary is giving the binary an executable permission
