APIs and Microservices first challenge

I’ve followed the hint for this project exactly as it shows with "author" : "Tommy Boggs", and the test still says that the author key does not exist.

Here is the whole code of the package.json file

	"name": "fcc-learn-npm-package-json",
	"author": "Tommy Boggs",
	"dependencies": {
		"express": "^4.14.0"
	"main": "server.js",
	"scripts": {
		"start": "node server.js"
	"repository": {
		"type": "git",
		"url": "https://idontknow/todo.git"

I have sent
Solution: https://boilerplate-npm.tommyboggs.repl.co
and the link to the json file itself as the solution link but the test both still come back as the author key not being there or being valid. I have sent both while the code was running as well. What am I doing wrong here?

Link to the challenge:

Welcome, tboggs.

I have been unable to start your app. When you start it, do you see any errors in the terminal?

This is all that the terminal shows.

The issue seems to be gone now. I’m assuming there’s a time delay between when I start the code and when it’s actually read by freecodecamp website.

Have you passed?

Typically, before I submit the link, I go to the app page, and refresh to ensure it is up-and-running.

I did pass. It was running in the Replit site.
