How does one correctly set up Javascript outside of Codecademy?

Hi, I would like to start using Javascript on Sublime text, or any other workspaces but I am finding it difficult to get Javascript set up correctly. I have downloaded the language into Sublime Text but unfortunately when trying to use the XMLHttpRequest and building the file I get an error saying that the XMLHttpRequest variable can't be found. I assume this is due to how I added the language as a library.

Any help will be hugely appreciated. When moving away from Codecademy the set up process seems to be the hardest bit. Knowing the language is only the first step.
