Where is the zip file for download so we can work on our local machine in vs code or whatever application you use?

Andrew says we can follow along on our local machine or in the workspace, but there is no zip file to download like in other courses and workshops. Is there another way to find it? Does this course not have one? I would love to know since I'm experiencing the same problem as others with the workspace constantly losing connection and needing to be reloaded. This makes it difficult to follow along.

Hi Alek Valencia,

To follow along on your local machine, you would first need to make sure that you have Node.js and npm installed on your computer (npm is automatically installed when you install Node.js), as there is no zip file for bcrypt.

The bcrypt package you would be downloading, is done so via your terminal/command line, using the command npm install <package>.

I'm attaching a link to Treehouse's installation guide for installing Node.js.
