Hiya there! First cd into the directory and run npm install and when its done , run it again. And if its still throwing errors, post your package.json file. I hope it helped!

5 months on but in case anyone else hits this, I'm guessing that Sarah successfully performed the install but then typed npm start which is indeed a common way of starting apps.

However, for this particular app, there is no 'start' script defined in the package.json file, but there is one called 'serve', so instead, one needs to type...

npm run serve
