Get nodejs to wait for user input to console
mwilki7 (1078)

How would I get nodejs to wait for me to enter something into the console?
I am using 'readline' but it looks like it skips it anyway.
Is this a repl terminal problem?

Use readline-sync instead. Readline is asynchronous, meaning it will trigger a function on input instead of trigger an input instance.
