Potential misunderstanding for students

in the direction it implicitly states " import * as" with as highlighted in blue as if it registers with the same functionality as import.

however only “Import *” and the “from” become highlighted as blue, and not “as” as is stated in the instructions…

Your code so far


import * as stringFunctions from"./string_functions.js";
// Only change code above this line

stringFunctions.uppercaseString("hello");
stringFunctions.lowercaseString("WORLD!");

Challenge: Use * to Import Everything from a File

Ya, that’s a little weird why the monaco editor doesn’t highlight as like it does from. I’m guessing it’s just an oversight/bug. You could open a github issue on it.

I’m not sure how much this discrepancy confuses people? Color highlighting is nice, but it’s the words on the page that count. Regardless, this is an issue for MS to fix :slight_smile:
