Basic Node and Express - Serve JSON on a Specific Route

I’ve tried everything possible but it keeps showing not found whenever I try the /json in my web view. I even added a cors but it still isn’t working

import express from 'express';
import cors from 'cors';

const app = express();


app.get('/json', (req, res) => {
  return res.status(200).json({"message": "Hello json"});

Alright, you just need one file index.js for your express. Include your code and

app.listen(3000, () => { // Make your API live
  console.log('Express server initialized');

And the package.json with the express package. Replit provides you a template with the prepared setup. What you need to do is to add the cors and change the routes.

Hope this helps.


This worked; however, I had to change the port number. Thanks
