Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I’ve used the link below as the solution link via replit and it doesn’t validate. See project link below.

And here is my code below:

	"name": "fcc-learn-npm-package-json",
	"author": "obakatorto",
	"dependencies": {
		"express": "^4.14.0"
	"main": "server.js",
	"scripts": {
		"start": "node server.js"
	"repository": {
		"type": "git",

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).


is a link to the file. You need a link to the live app, the server.

Press the green Run button. That will start the app. On the upper right, a window should open up with a url at the top. That is the url you want. The url should end with “”. That is the url you need to submit.

When I submit that url, it passes for me - your code works. You just need to get the correct url.

Give that a try. Let us know if you are still stuck.
