You might as well uninstall them - they won't cause any problems, but won't
do anything for you either as global packages.

npm uninstall -g itoolkit idb-connector

^should do the trick.

And yes, "local" is the right term for project-specific packages.

If you're interested, npm has a ton of useful commands - full documentation
is available here:

https://docs.npmjs.com/cli-documentation/

Hope that helps!

Thanks Kevin, I read both the articles and they made sense.

I changed my .profile to only set the PATH.

I installed the idb-connector and itoolkit (is the term locally) with
npm i idb-connector
npm i itoolkit
in my project folder.

When I issued
node http_db2.js
the server started up with no errors.

One last question. Should I and if so how should I uninstall idb-connector
and itoolkit globally?

Thanks for the help.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [IBMiOSS] Error: Can not find module itoolkit
Date: Thu, Oct 31, 2019 6:49 PM

I'm trying to run a simple demo from IBM (

) but I keep getting the error above when I try to start node.

I have in my .profile


PATH=/QOpenSys/usr/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/QOpenSys/usr/bin/X11:/usr/sbin:.:/usr/bin:/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/nodejs10/bin:/QOpenSys/pkgs/bin
LIBPATH=/QOpenSys/pkgs/bin
NODE_PATH=/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/nodejs10/lib/node_modules

And when I try to run
node http_db2.js I get the error.

I ran npm i --g itoolkit with no warnings and do see the module in
/QOpenSys/pkgs/lib/nodejs10/lib/node_modules

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Rob
