Describe your issue in detail here.
As hard as I try, the tests don’t pass. I’m really not sure what I’m doing wrong.
I’m supposed to check a an environment variable names
MESSAGE_STYLE and based on its value, if it’s
uppercase I return a JSON encoded js object with the key being
message and the value being
HELLO JSON and if not, the value will be
This is not complicated but I can’t pass the test.

The issue, is you are not following this part of the instructions:
/json GET route handler you created in the last challenge
Take some time to think about when the app runs, and when the lines of code are executed.
Hope this helps
Hello and thanks,
This worked. As I understand FCC is setting some other value for the
MESSAGE_STYLE env variable in the request and I was missing it by checking the env variable only outside of the GET request and response.
But I’m wondering how an environment variable is set through a request? Are the local ones overridden if the keys match to the keys in the key/value pairs in the URL or post data? I’m curious
Well, if you are really interested, here is the
fcc-express-bground-pkg (in your
package.json: fcc-express-bground-pkg/index.js at master · freeCodeCamp/fcc-express-bground-pkg · GitHub
So, it is not set through the request, because the package is a part of your Node app - therefore,
process is available to the package.
