First exercise of mongodb my app seems to timeout

Could you have a look at my app, to see what might be wrong?

edit: I removed the link to Glitch

check the package.json file for dependencies to see if everything looks right with mongodb and mongoose.

check the .env file for the MONGO_URI,

I don’t know why it’s URI and not URL?

check myApp.js file to see if I required mongoose and connected right

ok I ran

npm install mongoose

from the the console. and the app is up and running but it says it’s not connected now

Edit: Ok I changed this line

mongoose.connect(process.env.MONGO_URI);

to

mongoose.connect(process.env.MONGO_URI, {useNewUrlParser: true});

but still no luck

Edit:
Ok I change this line

MONGO_URI="mongodb+srv://FFC_user1:<password>@clusterfcc1-3dmjm.mongodb.net/test?retryWrites=true&w=majority"

to

MONGO_URI="mongodb+srv://FFC_user1:password@clusterfcc1-3dmjm.mongodb.net/test?retryWrites=true&w=majority"

Just got rid of the greater and less than signs <> around the password and that was it

You should not be posting your URI on a public forum. I suggest changing your password.
