Challenge: Basic JavaScript - Record Collection

Link to the challenge:

What have you tried so far? It looks like you reset all of the code.

This is a tricky challenge, and a big part of the challenge is understanding what your are supposed to do and breaking it down into smaller pieces.

i dont even know how to start honestly…i need directions

I can’t write the solution for you - that’s against the rules.

You have a series of tasks

  1. Your function must always return the entire record collection object.
  2. If prop isn’t tracks and value isn’t an empty string, update or set that album’s prop to value.
  3. If prop is tracks but the album doesn’t have a tracks property, create an empty array and add value to it.
  4. If prop is tracks and value isn’t an empty string, add value to the end of the album’s existing tracks array.
  5. If value is an empty string, delete the given prop property from the album.

Lets look at one at a time.

The first one already happens, so look at point 2.

How can you check if the variable prop is equal to "tracks"?
