[SOLVED]Need help getting started. I'm stuck with the node.js part

I got the program to work with the phone app. Now I moved on to connected to the computer.

I installed node.js. I typed in: npm install -g particle-cli and hit enter and is says this:
npm should be run outside of the node repl, in your normal shell

What does this mean?

I got is solved. I thought I was supposed to type in the node program. I figured out it was the command program on the computer

I made same mistake when I read "Next, open a command prompt or terminal, ".
Iā€™d opened node.js which opened its own terminal shell.

Kudos to moors7 for hammering on me to read community posts.
(So little time with marketing hammering on me!)
