Failed to lookup view index.js in directory — krakenjs

Framek­work: Krak­enjs

Error: Failed to lookup view “index.js” in directory

Sce­nario
You cre­ated your appli­ca­tion using the yeo­man gen­er­a­tor for krak­enjs. But when you run start your server with NODE_ENV=production you see the above error.

Res­o­lu­tion
Thats because the app looks for the appro­pri­ate files to ren­der in the .build direc­tory. The solu­tion is to build your project before run­ning node. The starter kit already comes with a grunt build task for your convenience.

grunt build && node server.js

You prob­a­bly want to include this as part of your npm scripts.
