Managing Packages with NPM - How to Use package.json, the Core of Any Node.js Project or npm Package

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

I’ve added author to the json package but it keeps stating it wants a live URL. I’ve tried downloading github desktop and replit but it doesn’t give a live URL option.

Your code so far

Challenge: Managing Packages with NPM - How to Use package.json, the Core of Any Node.js Project or npm Package

Link to the challenge:

I’ve tried using replit and github. It seems like whenever I try running the code again I get this error.

I’ve even downloaded github for desktop to try and get the live url. I did the same in github and it didn’t have an option for live url.

yes, and it works! but it says there is an author key missing when I upload the solution

It works! but it’s saying that it’s missing the author key, even though it is in the code

I’ve clicked Stop and made the change and then clicked run again. I am submitting the link in the console of the PIP in the challenge., but I am receiving the same author key error message when I submit it.

no errors after Running

I’ve tried and it still hasn’t passed, as it says there should have a valid “author” key

That one is passing for me.

I hate to suggest this but can you try using a VPN?

You can also try using CodeSandbox

it seems to have worked now!

Yes, I’m guessing a VPN might fix it. It does look an awful lot like a geolocation issue with Replit.

We did mention it in the GitHub issue, so maybe if Quincy talks to the Replit team at some point it will be brought up. Otherwise, we have to open an issue with Replit and see what they have to say about it.

Did you do anything to fix it?

I didn’t do anything else, I just kept submitting it and it finally accepted it

Persistence is key in all things development.

That is why we run broken code just a few more times before we come to the conclusion that we probably have to fix something in the code. :smile:

Other times, things just magically start to work again (usually because of something outside our control). :man_shrugging:

We can’t help you without seeing your code. Please create a new thread for your question and included a link to your Replit.
