Tell us what’s happening:
I am trying to submit solution for https___www.freecodecamp.org/learn/back-end-development-and-apis/managing-packages-with-npm/how-to-use-package-json-the-core-of-any-node-js-project-or-npm-package
I have read the instructions, cloned the boilerplate repo from https___ GitHub - freeCodeCamp/boilerplate-npm: A boilerplate for the freeCodeCamp curriculum.
I have made the change to add an “author” property in the package.json file. I have committed and pushed the change to my repo at https___github.com/spamfro/fcc-back-end/blob/gomix/package.json
I have run the local server, and checked it’s operational at http___local host:3000
I tried to “submit” the following links in the “Solution link” edit on the tutorial page at https___www.freecodecamp.org/learn/back-end-development-and-apis/managing-packages-with-npm/how-to-use-package-json-the-core-of-any-node-js-project-or-npm-package
The live site (with or without the trailing forward slash):
Notice that I can correctly load the package.json through the “hidden” _api link:
My GitHub repo HTTP link:
My GitHub repo SSH link (…this is not even accepted as it is not an http link):
Direct link to the local directory through http-server file server:
Neither of these works - the page shows the tests fail.
I tried another tutorial with the same result- https___www.freecodecamp.org/learn/back-end-development-and-apis/basic-node-and-express/meet-the-node-console
I’ve searched for solutions in freeCodeCamp forums, in Stackoverflow, … nothing works.
Either instructions are incomplete or am I missing something?
PS: the forum does not allow more than two links so I had to edit them to go through.
