Backend development and API first lesson error

Trying to complete the “Managing Packages with NPM” exercise in the “Backend development and APIs” track. I keep getting an error even though my package.json has the author field.

There are some odd issues with Replit. If I replace the dot before your user name with two dashes as suggested in this thread the full page loads for me. With the dot, it just gives an SSL error.

So like this:

https://backend-dev--mj_writes.repl.co/

You can also use the iframe URL instead.

I’m not sure what is going on with Replit. I was thinking it might be related to the user name (like the _ in your name) but I don’t see any pattern with that and other users with the same issue. You can try changing your user name from the profile settings (it can be done once) to test it.

Otherwise, there are other sites like Glitch you can try using instead. Just import the starter GitHub repo for the project when creating a new project.

note you can have only front-end projects on github pages, anything else is not supported
