All right so we're going to go ahead and set up our environment for our first project and now we're going to install no J.S.. And we're also going to install a tool called Get bash which is a command line tool for Windows that will give you a couple a couple of other features that the standard command line doesn't have. But in no way is it required you can use standard command windows command line or your terminal in Linux or Mac or whatever you'd like to use. All right so to download no J we're going to go to no J ask dot org and click on the latest stable version. They already have it here but you'll want to download it and then we're going to open that up. Right. So we're going to run it and it's just just like any other Windows Installer we're just going to kind of go through it. Click next except the agreements and the default folder is the program files folder which is fine. We're going to keep all the defaults. It's going to add to path. All right so we'll be able to access node and NPM from the command line from anywhere. All right so I'll install that. All right. So that's finished. And that's all there is to it. We now have node on our system. All right next thing is going to be the get bash tool. And you want to go to get CNN.com. And again you don't you don't need this. It's just a tool that I like to work with in Windows. All right I'm going to click this downloads for Windows and we're going to go ahead and download that file. All right so that's all set. Let's go ahead and run it. Again this is just a simple Windows Installer. We're going to put it in the program files folder and this stuff can all stay default this option here. I'm actually going to choose the last one. This is going to allow us to use some extra Unix tools from the windows command prompt. All right so we'll see like that. And then the rest of these will just keep default OK. So that's all set. You know uncheck that click Finish. And we should have this on our desktop. Usually ads. All right that's fine so we'll just go ahead and search for it. Get Bash and pintu the start you know we'll just bring it in Pitt. All right that's fine I'll just go to the actual shortcut and let's see. I'm going to bring it down here into my star into my taskbar. All right so we can now access it from here. And another cool thing that this does is it's if we want to say I'm going to create a folder called Project in my C-Drive. All right. And if we want to open the command line in this folder all we have to do is right click and we have a couple of context menus here. OK so we want to say get back here and that's going to go ahead and open up the command line for us in that folder. All right. And we can use commands like ls and other unix based commands. Now just to make sure that node was installed we can say no VI. OK that's going to tell us our version number also NPM we want to check that. And that looks good. All right. Now NPM We'll get into later on. It stands for node package modules and it's basically just a package manager so that we can add in room remove plug plug ins or modules to and from our application. All right so that's going to be it for now in the next video we'll look into NPM more and we'll also look at a basic HTP server using no Julia.
