Meet the Node console - "Not Found" by Browser

Here are the steps that I have done, the same way I did in Managing Packages with NPM:

  • Clone this GitHub repo with
    git clone git@github.com:freeCodeCamp/boilerplate-express.git
  • npm i
  • npm start
  • write console.log("Hello World") in myApp.js
  • Open up http://localhost:3000/

Here’s what the browser looks like:

Although Hello World does show up in my terminal:

Also when I look around server.js, here’s what I found (not sure if it’s relevant):

Any this is the package.json:

{
	"name": "fcc-learn-node-with-express",
	"version": "0.1.0",
	"dependencies": {
		"express": "^4.14.0",
		"body-parser": "^1.15.2",
		"cookie-parser": "^1.4.3",
		"fcc-express-bground": "https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/fcc-express-bground-pkg.git"
	},
	"main": "server.js",
	"scripts": {
		"start": "node server.js"
	}
}

I literally just got started and I’m already stuck. Any clue is appreciated.

Challenge: Basic Node and Express - Meet the Node console

Link to the challenge:

Do you have the project files updated on your GitHub account? If so, can you supply a link to your repo?

Also, when did you clone the repo?

I’m not sure how to do that. I thought I could complete the challenges locally.
And I cloned it like 2 hours ago.

You can do everything locally for the challenges (not the certification projects). We just we will not be able to help you as well without seeing the full project code.

What exactly happens when you submit http://localhost:3000/ for the challenge? Does the test pass/fail? Do you see any error messages showing up in the browser console? Do you see any error messages showing up in the terminal where Node is running when you submit the url?

I don’t know how to push a cloned repo to my own account, so I downloaded their ZIP and git init and push it to a new repo here.

With this new repo, when I npm start the browser still shows Not Found, no error messages showing up in the browser console, however I tried submitting it to fCC and the test passed! Now I’m very confused :rofl:

Same issues happening on my end. Cannot get past this lesson

hello world u see in the console not in screen web
