@m73382846 are you in the correct location where you have extracted the tarball to?
m73382846
@m73382846
I'm honestly not sure
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
Then make that sure
m73382846
@m73382846
I've extracted to the downloads folder as well as extracting to folders on hard drive. i'll run the find command for exercism and it won't find it; running locate command shows that it's showing up in the downloads folder.
i've followed the CLI walkthrough and keep getting stuck at moving the exectuable
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
locate is using an index which might be out of date, find scans actual drive content. So if you can't find the unpacked binary anymore, then you'll probably need to redownload
m73382846
@m73382846
have tried redownloading :(
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
And then you have unpacked? How?
m73382846
@m73382846
i've been following the instructions in the cli walkthrough step by step; have tried both right clicking on the download and selecting "extract here" as well as running the cmd line prompt
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
What happens then? What do you observe to be changed on your disk?
m73382846
@m73382846
there's a new file created in the downloads folder called exercism-linux-64bit, that's the only change
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
Then please run file exercism-linux-64bit from the download folder. I doubt its a file though, but a folder containing the exercism binary and some shell completion scripts.
Or it is actually exercism-linux-64bit.tar because you only extracted from the gzip layer…

@m73382846
just got it to work.lol. thank you

@NobbZ
Happy to hear that! Have fun solving exercises!

When trying to configure my exercism with my token i get a timeout...Im assuming its because im behind our office-proxy
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
Then make sure you have configured your proxy correctly using HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables.
pero
@peropeanut_twitter
Ive tried doing that, still the same (Windows 10 )
Alright, it seems i had to do it in the specific cmd line window, worked now..Thank you
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
Well, of course you have. This is how environment variables work, they'll never affect siblings only children processes and itself.
Usually you should set them system wide.

@noerrm

Hi, I cannot use the exercism commands in the command line because I am behind a corporate proxy. I set the proxy in the Windows 10 environment variables. The error is "[Get https://api.exercism.io/v1/ping: proxyconnect tcp: net/http: TLS handshake timeout]".

Regarding the previous messages, I set the proxy and https proxy as system variables.

Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
It seems as if its TLS timeout takes to much time. This timeout isn't configurable currently.

@mapnhike
just signed up for exercism as a newbie looking to learn javascript. Have node installed v10.16.3 ; npm v6.9.0; and git v2.23.0 windows 1 - installed Jest 24.9 Babel 7.6 and ESLint v6.4. When I try to install exercism CLI and use the command "exercism configure with the tokens, i receive "bash: exercism: command not found" -
mapnhike
@mapnhike
troubleshooting and exited the command line (bash) restarted and tried again; - worked and received "You have configured the Exercism command line client" and acknowledges config dir, Token, Workspace, and API Base URL -

@NobbZ
I'm glad to hear that you have sorted it out. Feel free to ask any question you might have next

guys
which langauge programming I should pick if I want find quickly a job
Victor Goff
@kotp
I would pick one in which you already have experience with. Otherwise, find one that is used in your area of expertise to solve problems in that area, and learn that language.

@uMaDe132
Hi, im having problems installing the exercism to the $PATH, can anyone help me?
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
@bmnn01co totally depends on what you already know, where you live, if you are willing/able to move for your job, if you accept remote positions or want only work remote, etc. If you were living in Hamburg, my bet were Java or PHP if you have prior knowledge in either. Or moving to somewhere outside of Germany if you haven't studied… Finding the first position without having succesfully studied is hard here…
@uMaDe132 sure. What error do you see?

I cannot install properly exorcism
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

@NobbZ
Hello @crisanlucid, this is quite a common problem if you have downloaded the wrong archive, please double check if it was the correct one and matches your OS and CPU architecture.
no
@nonononahnah_gitlab
Hi, I have messed up the first step, help would be appreciated.
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
@nonononahnah_gitlab! I'm not sure what step you are talking about, as steps are different per operating system, but usually the first thing to do is downloading…
no
@nonononahnah_gitlab
Ah, ok. That was probably the thing I messed up first. Which one do I need to dl for my Manjaro?
then I tried the steps as described, building a directory
did not work either
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
Manjaro is an Arch derivative AFAIR, and therefore a linux.
no
@nonononahnah_gitlab
I downloaded linux 64
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
And what does "did not work either" mean? Any error message?
no
@nonononahnah_gitlab
no, just did not build the directory, and when I built it in a different way and used the move command, it did not show up, not even with -al
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
What were the exact commands you used?
no
@nonononahnah_gitlab
oh, I have the worst memory possible, sorry. Must have used the commands that were described in the step by step instructions...lemme try and remember
Norbert Melzer
@NobbZ
You should have a history…
no
@nonononahnah_gitlab
mkdir -p !/bin
oh, how can I get to that history please?
I'll just p[aste it then
