Error while Setup Appsmith Locally for Server Side Development


I am trying to run an application using the instructions provided on the Appsmith GitHub page. However, Visual Studio is unable to compile the code due to non-detectable modules like "@shared/ast". I need help resolving this issue.


The problem is that an application cannot be run due to non-detectable modules. The user has provided a screenshot of the error message which shows that Visual Studio cannot compile code because it is unable to detect "@shared/ast" modules. To solve this issue, the community suggests checking the server logs by running "docker logs -f appsmith" command. Alternatively, the user can follow the steps from this guide on how to get logs for a deployment based on Docker Compose. Another solution suggested is installing the Prettier plugin, after which the user is requested to check if it fixes the errors.
