Package.json author is expecting url

Tell us what’s happening:
The first assignment asks for author tag in the package.json. When I enter it, it says “please enter url”. If I enter url, like “”, it moves on but I fail the challenge.

Your code so far
“author”: “Ashwin Kambli”,

Challenge: How to Use package.json, the Core of Any Node.js Project or npm Package

Link to the challenge:

For these challenges you need a publicly visible site with a Node.js backend that you have access to. The easiest way in my opinion is to use Glitch. Glitch lets you host your own little Node.js projects for free and using the LINK provided in the introduction you get a new Glitch project that is already set up. Glitch comes with its own text editor and file browser, so in the given project you just navigate to package.json (file explorer should be on the left) and there you make the requested changes. The link that freecodecamp is asking for is the link to the page that you get when you select the SHOW option (top left of the Glitch editor).
Also I would strongly recommend creating a Glitch account, as this makes it much easier to track your projects, but I don’t think it’s necessary.

As I said, you don’t have to use Glitch, but it’s a very easy and free option.

If you need any more help just let me know. Happy coding :upside_down_face:
