Whether you are having problems with nodejs running on windows terminal in Webstorm, or are just comfortable with Git BASH, there is a way of replacing the default windows command line with a Git BASH terminal.
Firstly, install Git for windows and make a note of the installation directory.
Then open up webstorm, then settings (Default or local project, doesn’t really matter).
Navigate to Tools>Terminal, and enter the BASH initialisation command;
D:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe -login -i
The path is optional, if you have it set in System Variables already. If you’re not sure, just use the full path.
Until next time,
