Challenge: Add a Version to Your package.json

Link to the challenge:

This field describes the current version of your project.

so, what version of the project you are on?

if you want to read about software versioning you can read about it here:

and this for some practic instructions:

Thanks for the information. I am actually using repl it to do the assignment so, wondering how to apply this versioning there as I am not using vs code.

This is my repl it link for this project
https://boilerplate-npm-1.meeramenon07.repl.co

that’s the live version, I don’t see your code

you can just add the line provided as an example

{
“name”: “fcc-learn-npm-package-json”,
“author”: “Meera Menon”,
“description”: “A project for learning backend in a practical way!”,
“keywords”: [
“freecodecamp”,
“backend”,
“project”
],

node v12.16.1
I just saw this in my repl it in the package json I guess this is the one to write for the version right? Its already there behind the hood on repl it , I guess,

no, that’s the version of node that you are using

the version field is about your own project

{
“name”: “fcc-learn-npm-package-json”,
“author”: “Meera Menon”,
“description”: “A project for learning backend in a practical way!”,
“keywords”: [
“freecodecamp”,
“backend”,
“project”
],
“version”: “v12.16.1”,
“license”: “freecodecamp”,
“dependencies”: {
“express”: “^4.14.0”,
“moment”:“2.14.0”
},
