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

So like the project says you can do it in three ways.

  • Clone this GitHub repo and complete these challenges locally.
  • Use our Replit starter project to complete these challenges.
  • Use a site builder of your choice to complete the project. Be sure to incorporate all the files from our GitHub repo.

So if you’re not familiiar with Github, its a website for storing code… used by just about every coder and project out there from what I can tell. The projects are stored there and to do them you copy the starter code, then finish it to complete each project.

Cloning the github just means copying the files to your local hard drive and working with your own code editor… fun to do later, but to submit your projects you will need to put them online at some point anyway, and have your local system setup for coding (Like by installing VSCode or something similar, and all the required software packages.

Second is the easiest way… Replit is a website for writing code. To begin with you should visit Replit and sign up for a free account. Once you are signed in, the link provided in the challenge that says Use the replit starter code, it should automatically import the code into Replit, and you can code your project there, Run it, and then when finished it provides a URL to submit:

The last option just says you can use whatever other coding website or hosting you prefer, and copy the github files to there to start… which you just said you don’t know of any.

So I think to start, using the Replit Starter code, and programming it Replit is the way to go. Its simple, easy, stores all your projects, and does all the initial setup for you. And its already online so to submit your code you just paste that URL.
