I’m using ember on Linux Mint. When I start ember s I get the following message:
Could not start watchman
Visit https://ember-cli.com/user-guide/#watchman for more info.
However… the link has no information on not being able to start watchman - only on not being able to find it.
How can I resolve this?
You don’t really need to. AFAIK watchman is just an optional file watcher that works better than the built-in one. So… if you have it installed it uses watchman, if not, it prints that warning and uses the default one. I’ve been working on ember projects for 3 years now and get that message every single time I start ember s, no ill effects.
Thanks dknutsen… that’s good information to know!
In anycase I continued playing and followed these instructions:
The message is now gone.
