I'm wondering why I can't just run my node/express app by typing "node app.js" in the terminal within Webstorm after trying to run the BoilerPlate Node Express webstorm generated project out of the box. I got it running ok by clicking Play but I like the command-line.
1) why can't I just do that? am I missing something?
here's what I got when I tried:
it didn't do anything! why? I remember creating a blank project and putting in express and being able to do this with no problem and seeing that it's listening (writing out the colsole) right in the terminal like normal but can't do it with your project?
2) What's the advantage to using the GUI to click play instead
