Need help with package.json challenge

Hello, this is what I have as my package.json file. I’ve decided to use replit.

This is the code:

	"name": "fcc-learn-npm-package-json",
  "author": "ABC",
	"dependencies": {
		"express": "^4.14.0"
	"main": "server.js",
	"scripts": {
		"start": "node server.js"
	"repository": {
		"type": "git",
		"url": "https://idontknow/todo.git"

I get the same error about the author not being valid. I’m guessing that I’m doing something wrong when it comes to interfacing with the freeCodeCamp website.

When it comes to Replit, is there a specific way of submitting this code? I would normally just pass in the above link and expect things to ‘work’, am I doing something wrong?

HI @adabot !

I created a new post for you.

Similar to the other user, it doesn’t looks like you have the correct starter files.

I don’t see your server.js file

Make sure you have all of the correct starter files for it to run correctly.

When you fix that, then make sure to hit Run

and then copy the link you find here in to the fcc submission field
Yours will have your username followed by

Hi! Thanks for answering. Maybe I’m being dense… but when I hit “Run”, I don’t see a link of any sort showing up…

Is there a YouTube video that can hold my hand?

There was a bug with the boilerplates when changed something recently. We pushed through a fix to the boilerplates, so I recommend deleting the replit you started and just click the starter replit link again in the challenge. The fixed version should install everything correctly when Run is clicked the first time.


Ah! I know what I was messing up. Basically, I wasn’t creating the replit from that link. Gotcha, thank you.

This is what I have now:

The problem here is that some of the tests are timing out?

// running tests
package.json should have a valid "author" key (Test timed out)
// tests completed


Wait… it seems to be working now… how odd.
