API and Microservices validation

Tell us what’s happening:
I am at the first step in the course, and I gave my github url for validation. The validation fails. I tried everything. Even the hint says exactly what I have done. What am I missing ?

Your code so far

Challenge: How to Use package.json, the Core of Any Node.js Project or npm Package

Link to the challenge:

Welcome, navneetkarnani.

Please note:

  • The tests require a live app to test off of.
  • A link to a GitHub repo does not work.
  • A link to a code file does not work.

The app must be hosted somewhere which is publicly visible, in order for the tests to work. The Repl.it platform is recommended, but here are others which are commonly used:

  • Glitch
  • CodeSandbox
  • Heroku
  • JSBin

Hope this clarifies.

Here are things I have tried:
Click on the Repl.It link and make the change there.

  1. Copy the URL from the browser, and use that on the page. Did not work.
  2. Copy the URL from the right side of the repl.it page ( one with repl.co ) and use that, did not work.

Also, I tried creating a github repo, and making changes there, and using that. Did not work.

Obviously, the github step was not expeccted to work, as is clear from your answer.

But what I did not realise, until I read the answer above, is that I will have to run “npm install” and then “npm start” to make this work.

Thanks for the hint.

Glad you managed to get it working.
