MongoDB and Mongoose - Install and Set Up Mongoose

Tell us what’s happening:

So, I have been getting this error on this task

// running tests
“mongoose version ^5.11.15” dependency should be in package.json (Test timed out)
“mongoose” should be connected to a database (Test timed out)
// tests completed

I’ve spent so much time on this already, what could be the error?

Your code so far

Here’s my code:

const mySecret = process.env[‘MONGO_URI’]


let mongoose = require(‘mongoose’);

mongoose.connect(mySecret, { useNewUrlParser: true, useUnifiedTopology: true});
