In this lesson we will learn to create a development mode for our server. We do this by installing nodemon as a dev dependency and creating a script tag called 'dev'.

This script tag will execute the command nodemon server/server.js --watch common --watch server.

We can execute this command by running npm run dev.

When running in development mode the server will be automatically restarted when there are changes detected in the common and server directories.
