What IDE should I use to practice what I learned?


#1

I enjoyed the Code Academy course. I received amazing help in a timely manner and am extremely grateful. Cheers!

I am now eager to start practicing, but I can't find a suitable IDE.

I have Sublime running and the console.log function works fine, but I can't get it to prompt the user for input. I'd like to have my workspace as similar to what I'm used to (CodeAcademy's) as possible before I get started, so can someone point me in the direction of an IDE or some sort of command library that will grant me all of the functionality I've practiced in the CodeAcademy Javascript course?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Yes to use sublime text as a JavaScript console you would need NodeJs(one of the ways).After that all you have to do is write a build configuration for Javascript
Take a look here

That's what I did, but I can't prompt the user for input.

var x = prompt("hello world");

That gives me:

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

ReferenceError: prompt is not defined

Hey! one question, in Sublime Text the python's 'input function doesn't work, for example:
forename = input("what is your name:")
print("hello" + forename)

when I run this code it's something like this:
What is your name: Ridiculous alien I just give an Input.
Then nothing happens, when I press the enter, nothing happens! please help!
cheers!
