A must know topic for JavaScript dev interviews!

Hey 👋,

If you have ever worked with Node.Js, you must have used a package called nodemon for development.

For those who are not aware of it, nodemon is a tool that helps develop NodeJs based applications by automatically restarting the node application when file changes in the directory are detected. We can simply install it globally and use it throughout our system without making any additional changes to the code.

But, have you ever thought about how it works internally? How would you proceed if you are asked to build a nodemon clone?

This is a really interesting Node and JavaScript developer interview question. It helps the interviewer to test your basics such as NodeJs stream, child process, events, debouncing etc.

In this article, we will create a simple Node.Js CLI (command line application) tool named as nodekeeper, similar to nodemon. So, let’s get started.
