Managing Packages with npm Challenges

Tell us what’s happening:
I’ve set up the project on as described in step one.
but lesson one will not validate and when I click on a hint it says I should be logged in on glitch. no mention of glitch in the introduction so what am I missing?

Challenge: How to Use package.json, the Core of Any Node.js Project or npm Package

Link to the challenge:

Hello there,

Do not worry about the hint. It is outdated.

The best way to debug the backend challenges is by opening the browser console, when you are on the /learn (where you submit the challenge) page. Look for any errors.

If you see no errors there, then here are a few things to note:

  1. The link you should be submitting takes a form similar to the placeholder of the solution box on /learn
  2. The Repl project, must be running in the background, in order for the test api to reach your project. Ensure the app does not crash (error out), when starting it.
  3. The easiest way to get help is to provide a link to your Repl code. Not a link to the live app - we like code :smiley:

Hope this helps
