I somehow feel like I’m mssing something. This lesson about “What is Node” talks a lot about web server stuff which has not been covered before. It also shows a video that explains how to install node.js locally on a Mac and use it with the terminal (I assume that’s the Mac version of the console).
This is all very confusing to me because it sounds like I should know a lot this stuff already (e. g. the paragraphs about modules and globals)
As I am on a Windows machine, I downloaded node.js and installed it for Windows but I have no clue at all how I should use it together with the GitBash terminal i downloaded and installed in one of the prior lessons. I also thought I might code some scripts in VS Code but also have no clue, how Node.js, the GitBash and VS Code work together as they - as per the curriculums recommendation - all access different folders on my local filesystem.
E. g. GitBash is in my user folder and can’t get out of it, VS Code uses a local folder “projects” right under my C drive and I have no clue how and where Node.js, that I just installed, is running.
Should I just skip this and proceed through these lessons, hoping they get clearer later on or what is the expectation here?
I would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction, because i Have the feeling, I should know all this but feel a little bit blind (where I live they say: you don’t see the forest because of all the trees )
Thank you very much in advance!!
