Error: Cannot find module 'chai-as-promised'

I have created a Node JS Project  in IntelliJ and downloaded Chai and “Chai-as-Promised”.

“Chai” and “Chai-as-Promised” are downloaded under “Preferences->Language & Frameworks->Javascripts->Libraries”

I  added below code snippet to the script which I need to execute.


var chai = require('chai');

var chaiAsPromised = require('chai-as-promised');


var expect = chai.expect;


Even though, code can detect Chai module, it seems it cannot detect “Chai as Promised” and I am getting below error.

Please make sure to install both modules in your project using `npm i chai chai-as-promised`;

JavaScript libraries (Preferences->Language & Frameworks->Javascripts->Libraries) are only used by the IDE for completion/types resolving, they are not available to Node.js in runtime
