How do I prompt user for input in Sublime?



I have the Sublime IDE up and running. I have it configured so the console works and I can check my code as I go. However, I cannot figure out how to prompt the user for input.

How do I prompt the user for input? I've tried prompt(""); as well as window.prompt(""); and no luck.



Did you set your prompt as a var? Like so: var answer = prompt("Enter answer");


Code is:

var answer = prompt("Enter answer:");

Result is:

C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 3\Packages\User\sample:1
(function (exports, require, module, __filename, __dirname) { var answer = prompt("Enter answer:");
