APIs and Microservices Projects - Timestamp Microservice Error solution support

// running tests Your project can handle dates that can be successfully parsed by
new Date(date_string)
// tests completed

After testing result does not feel different but the problem does not change.

let responseObject = {}
app.get('/api/timestamp/:date_string', (request, response) => {
  let date_string = request.params.date_string
  if (date_string.includes('-')) {
    //if it is date string create time stamp
    responseObject['unix'] = new Date(date_string).getTime()
    responseObject['utc'] = new Date(date_string).toUTCString()
  }

  else {
    date_string = date_string / 1000
    date_string = date_string * 1000
     responseObject['unix'] =date_string
    responseObject['utc'] = new Date(date_string).toUTCString()
  }


  if (!responseObject['unix'] || !responseObject['utc']) {
    return response.json({ error: "Invalid Date" })
      }
  return response.json(responseObject)
})
app.get('/api/timestamp', (request, response) => {
  responseObject['unix'] = new Date().getTime()
  responseObject['utc'] = new Date().toUTCString()
  return response.json(responseObject)
})

I’d like to help but your question is not clear.

  • Can you link to the question?
  • Can you try to explain what you expect and what you actually get?

I can not pass the request of: running tests Your project can handle dates that can be successfully parsed by
new Date(date_string)
all other requirement have been meet but I can not understand why it does not pass the test.
the only way i managed to pass the code for the given require meant ( running tests Your project can handle dates that can be successfully parsed by
new Date(date_string) ) was when I did not follow this format

date_string = date_string / 1000
    date_string = date_string * 1000
     responseObject['unix'] =date_string
    responseObject['utc'] = new Date(date_string).toUTCString()

I did this

responseObject['unix'] =new Date(date_string).getTime()

which can not pass the error story.

If you can post a link to the project on repl.it or somewhere similar, you may get more help debugging the problem. Even though these snippets of code look like they may work or are close to working, it is much harder to solve these kinds of problems without all of the code and a live project to test.

Good luck.

In your /api/timestamp/:date_string route, you should add a

console.log(request.params.date_string);

at the very beginning of your route, and then everywhere you change your response object, you should add

console.log(responseObject);

That way, you can monitor the input and the output in the console as you run the fCC tests against your API. If you do that, you will see that the tests are requesting

and I believe you are not handling the third entry correctly.

Good luck.

Okay I will try again and thank you for the advice.
I may ask other question again.
