JavaScript Express Basics (2015) The Request and Response Objects in Express Requests and the request object

on PC, I cant get inspector to do anything and dont know how to get terminal to use cmd *git:(interactive...)*

Currently trying to debug here :

$node --inspect --debug-brk src/app Debugger listening on port 9229. Warning: This is an experimental feature and could change at any time. To start debugging, open the following URL in Chrome: chrome-devtools://devtools/remote/serve_file/@60cd6e859b9f557d2312f5bf532f6aec5f284980/inspector.html?experiments=true&v8only=true&ws= Debugger attached.

Question On a PC how do you get: $ git:(interactiveDebuggingAndExploratoryProgramming) node --debug src/app.js bash: syntax error near unexpected token `interactiveDebuggingAndExploratoryProgramming'

to be a valid commmand? I tried node-inspector too.

I have been spending hours on this and cant find an answer in the docs.

git:(interactiveDebuggingAndExploratoryProgramming) is not part of the command. its part of Huston's bash prompt. Its a special plugin or program he has added to his bash/terminal that always shows him what git branch he is on. instead of

git:(interactiveDebuggingAndExploratoryProgramming) node --debug src/app.js

you would just type

node --debug src/app.js

"node" is the command, and everything after it are arguments. The text that appears before is just part of his prompt that is automatically displayed. your prompt might be just a "$" or a directory path followed by a "$"

The extra bit he has on his prompt isn't necessary, you can check what git branch you're on by using the command:

git branch
