Development environment

Before we get started, ensure you have the following items set up to be able to follow this tutorial:

  • Node.js version 16.13.0 or newer installed on your system. Installing Node.js will also install npm.
  • A Dynatrace SaaS environment of your choice
  • A code editor like Visual Studio Code

Verify Prerequisites

Verify your Node.js installation by running the following command in your terminal, which will display the version of Node.js installed on your machine.

node --version

If you need different Node.js versions for your projects, we suggest using Node Version Manager (NVM) to switch between versions.
