I am still failing the test

Tell us what’s happening:
I do not understand what I amdoing wrong with this code so far.

Your code so far

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

Challenge: Use the .env File

Link to the challenge:

I’m still not as far as you, but I see that you are checking the message style.

if uppercase
change to uppercase
just send message

you need toUpperCase() the messages that don’t pass your if test.

Hello there,

Just to make sure:

  • This is what should be in the .env file: MESSAGE_STYLE=uppercase

Now, this lesson has had issues, over the past few days, likely due to a breaking change with a package used in the testing.

So, I recommend you move on, from it. Or, you can clone the project into CodeSandbox, and complete it there.

Hope this helps
