My package.json isn't passing

Tell us what’s happening:
Below is a link to my pacakge.json which is not passing the tests.

Honestly no idea what’s wrong. I’m guessing it doesn’t like my test setup. It’s hosted on a fresh ubuntu 20.04 Digital Ocean Droplet running nginx.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

HI @damianicely !

You need to make sure that your link returns the live site.
The live site should look like this instead of a json file.

You could just run the challenges locally and submit the localhost link.

Otherwise, if you want to deploy the site make sure you submitting the correct link for the live site.

Most people will use something like Heroku.

Hope that helps!

Lol ok, I see the issue. I was fairly certain it was something fundamental like that. I’ll follow your article… seems like there should maybe be a link to that article in the instructions for those (admittedly few of us) that want to put it up on a live server.

Is there a way to suggest that?

Also Big Thankyou!
