While I'm learning javascript following a book, I Like to take notes with org-mode. I use Indium and followed this instructions to handle it working

It works well, and I get my work done, interacting with browser, and getting great notes and structure about code, following exercises ...

But I need to type on every src block the session:

#+begin_src js :session "*JS REPL*"

I tried to add, this at the begining of the file but not work:

#+PROPERTY: header-args:js :session "*JS REPL*"


#+PROPERTY: header-args:js :session *JS REPL*

or this after the line of the section title:

* my title
 :header-args: :session *JS REPL*


* my title
 :header-args: :session "*JS REPL*"

or even scaping the * "\JS REPL\*", but nothing works. I only get this error:


TypeError: require(...).print is not a function

    First, try setting the session name to a string without whitespaces - maybe :session jsrepl. Second, did you refresh your local settings? Try C-c C-c on the property line or save the file and call revert-buffer.

First, set the session name to a string without whitespaces, maybe :session jsrepl. Second, refresh your local settings - either by calling C-c C-c with the cursor above the property line, or save the file and call M-x revert-buffer.
