First we need to make a new directory for our project .After creating directory we need to run command npm init. Then we need to install node modules in our project using npm i node-modules . After that npm I for package.json must be included .

After these two packages install our project we need to make directories for
config[database configuration] - mkdir config
controllers - mkdir controllers
Then we need to create another js file in our root folder that is app.js where our all routes and engines are merged .

For express framework we must need to include express package in our project with
npm i express , after express install we need to install nodemon for server autoreload
npm i nodemon .
