Syntax Error for the first line of code

When i do const selenium = require("selenium-webdriver");

i get this error: bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('

this is happening in workspace

2 Answers

is it saying "unexpected token" on that exact one or "unexpected token near" that one?

Although this is over a year old someone may come across this like I did. The reason you see that error is you need to enter the Node REPL first by entering node at the treehouse:~/workspace$ prompt. Then the prompt will change from treehouse:~/workspace$ to >.
