Node.js Question

SyntaxError: Use of const in strict mode?

I am trying to login on facebook.com with selenium-webdriver.

var webdriver = require('selenium-webdriver'),
By = require('selenium-webdriver').By,
until = require('selenium-webdriver').until;

var driver = new webdriver.Builder()
.forBrowser('firefox')
.build();

driver.get('https://www.facebook.com/login');
driver.findElement(By.id('email')).sendKeys('****');
driver.findElement(By.id('pass')).sendKeys('*****');
driver.findElement(By.id('loginbutton')).click();

driver.findElement(By.linkText('Settings')).then(function(element) {
console.log('Yes, found the element');
}, function(error) {
console.log('The element was not found, as expected');
});
driver.quit();


It is giving error:


/home/shubham/node_modules/selenium-webdriver/index.js:25
const builder = require('./builder');
^^^^^

Answer

Ok, the solution here is simply to update nodejs

npm cache clean -f
npm install -g n
n stable
node --version
node app.js

Or for some reason you can't update node?
