Can't figure out .env on Replit

I can’t seem to figure out what I’m doing wrong here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

const mySecret = process.env['MESSAGE_STYLE']
console.log("Hello World");
app.use("/public", express.static(__dirname + "/public"));

app.get("/json", (req, res) =>
if(process.env.MESSAGE_STYLE==="uppercase")
{res.json({"Hello Json".toUpperCase();});}
else {
res.json({
message: "Hello json"
});});

Challenge: Use the .env File

Link to the challenge:

Welcome there,

You are not really following this part of the instructions:

…in the /json GET route handler you created in the last challenge…

Specifically, you need to think about when the code is run (defined), and when the variables can change.

Hope this helps


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 (’).
