npm ERR! Missing script: "start"

By: Deepak Mishra in node.js Tutorials on 2023-04-03  

The error message indicates that the start script is missing in your project's package.json file. You can add a start script to your package.json file to define the command to start your project. Here's an example:

"name": "my-project",
"version": "1.0.0",
"scripts": {
"start": "node index.js"

In the example above, running npm start will execute the command node index.js. Make sure to replace index.js with the file that contains the entry point for your project.

If you already have a start script defined in your package.json file and you are still getting the error, make sure that you are running the command from the root directory of your project.
