I am using node.js to create a web application. When I run the application (either by opening index.html on the browser or using the command "npm start" on the terminal) I get two errors:
Uncaught ReferenceError: process is not defined
Uncaught ReferenceError: require is not defined
I solved the "require is not defined" error by specifically including in my index.html head tag the link to this script, where the require function is defined.
However, I cannot find something similar for the process function.
My question is doublefold:
Why do built-in node.js modules need to be re-defined? Why are they not recognized as they are, that is "built-in modules"? Doesn't the term "built-in module" mean that a module need not be redefined externaly/second-handedly?
Is there a way to solve this problem? My script is very simple, I am just trying to use a basic function of node.js, so I cannot figure out what errors I might have done.
If anyone has come about this problem and has found a way around it or a reason this happens, you would be of great help.
