Prettier, Webstorm, NVM and Linux

I installed Webstorm and wanted Prettier.

I simply installed the Prettier extension and added a File Watcher (as stated in the Doc)

But Prettier refused to run with “node not found” something…

I added this line to my .bashrc file to make sure NVM creates a symlink to the current node version:


Then I edited my environment sudo nano /etc/environment and added this folder at the end of my PATH /home/tanguy/.nvm/current/bin (the NVM symlink)

Now Webstorm will launch and Node will be in the PATH so Prettier runs fine.

Oh and I had to add some command line arguments to the Prettier File Watcher on Webstorm because the plugin was not reading my eslintrc.js configuration file.

Netdata in Docker – Monitor my machine

Netdata: &

is a wonderful tool to monitor a device and trigger alarms

To run it in a second on your local machine, use this docker command

docker run -d --name=netdata -p 19999:19999 -v /proc:/host/proc:ro -v /sys:/host/sys:ro -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:ro --rm --cap-add SYS_PTRACE --security-opt apparmor=unconfined netdata/netdata

Then access the dashboard http://localhost:19999
