If you haven’t done so already we recommend you to install NodeJS onto your computer as many of the tools we use rely exclusively on this being available.
Our recommended version of NodeJS is 9.x you can find it here and then locate the appropriate version for your development computers operating system.
Once you have downloaded and install NodeJS install the following packages.
A basic http server great for serving a web page directly from your computer.
Run the following command to install http-server from inside your terminal or command prompt:
npm install -g http-server
You may need to close and open the terminal/command prompt in order for the http-server app to be available.
You can spawn a simple http server on your computer using the following command
http-server ./folder-to-serve -p 8080
You should see something similar to the following:
Starting up http-server, serving ./folder-to-serve
Hit CTRL-C to stop the server
This will mean that you can now access the files being served from that folder on your chrome os device.
