‘http-server’ is not recognized as an internal or external command

After installing angular-seed project, i did the following steps:

Cloned the repository :

git clone https://github.com/angular/angular-seed.git

cd angular-seed

Then I ran npm install

at the end of the install i get:

[email protected] prestart C:UsersuserDocumentsGitHubcomilionangular-seed
npm install

[email protected] postinstall C:UsersuserDocumentsGitHubmyprojectangular-seed
bower install

[email protected] start C:UsersuserDocumentsGitHubmyprojectangular-seed
http-server -a localhost -p 2324

‘http-server’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

npm ERR! [email protected] start: http-server -a localhost -p 2324

please let me know if you have any suggestions how to solve this issue.


@BenFortune found the answer it was

http-server needs to be installed globally with npm install -g http-server
