Challenge: Use the .env File

Make sure your server is up and running

Hello @Yon-Yon , I think the issue, as far as I can tell, is that you are not requiring dotenv as a dependency (normally you should add the path of the .env file, but in replite only requiring it is enough). Add this to your dependencies: require(‘dotenv’).config() Good luck.

Dotenv is not a requirement for this challenge on repl.

What link are you submitting?

The basic logic of your if statement looks correct to me.

I tried it again today and it worked! not sure why. though.
