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.

Thanks,
Harry
