I am trying to run a simple http server in my project directory. All I need is GET request support, so I can GET html/css/js/etc.
For that I wanted to use http-server from npm.
I installed it with
npm install http-server -g
Okay, the issue was - I had another package installed on Ubuntu, which is also called
Node JS package is called
nodejs on my system and I think that http-server is looking specifically for 'node'.
In order to work around this:
I removed the node package with
sudo apt-get remove node and created a symlink for nodejs:
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/nodejs /usr/local/bin/node
