Port 5000 already in use...

Just to note that on macOS port 5000 is used by Control Center for Airplay on Port 5000. Not sure why Apple chose such a popular port, but this error can be circumvented by either changing the port the API Express server in api/app.js:

// Set our port.
app.set('port', process.env.PORT || 5000);

...or by turning off AirPlay Receiver in System Settings: AirPlay Receiver
