    I'm trying to run dart-sass with node, there is no 'app.js' file and I have no idea what to point the Application Startup File to. The google isn't telling me squat. Help!

    Hello Tre Stange,

    As far as I see on the website, this 'dart-sass' is something to be integrated into your existing project, and what I understand with that is that you must have already an application that integrates with 'dart-sass' code.

    Said that, the best you can do is to contact them to gather more information about 'dart-sass'.

    Hi there,

    i cannot run my node app using typescript. After searching forums i wasn't able to find a resolution for this:

    // Works
    const jsimport = require('express');
    console.log('Hello World');

    // Typescript default import doesn't work...
    import express from 'express';


    Phusion Passenger fails with a syntax error even if typescript is installed as a NPM dependency:

    import express from 'express';
    SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier

    Hello Florian Wagner,

    To receive an answer to your question I would suggest starting a topic at StackOverflow or similar forum.

    From the Plesk Technical Support side we aren't experts in Node.js apps creation.

    However, maybe someone from other Pleskians could give a hint.

    Florian Wagner I got the same issue. Did you build your typescript app using npm run build?

    Where would someone do this in Plesk UI:

    "Click NPM install and Run script if necessary."
