Quality Assurance Projects - Metric-Imperial Converter - express removed second '/' from request.query properties


Thank you for taking a look at my query.

Link to the FCC Project Challenge

One of the FCC tests for this project wants ‘invalid number’ returned from a query of input=1//2gal

The problem is that the second ‘/’ is simply removed

    .get(function (req, res){
      let input = req.query.input;

In fact, none of the properties in console.log(req) contain the second ‘/’ …

…, even the originalURL property removed the second ‘/’.

My question is, how can the raw query, as typed in by the user, be obtained?

I’m using Google Chrome as browser.

The boilerplate template was downloaded 20 Jan 2021.

Live link to my glitch project.

Packages are as supplied in the boilerplate.

    "body-parser": "^1.19.0",
    "chai": "^4.2.0",
    "chai-http": "^4.3.0",
    "cors": "^2.8.5",
    "dotenv": "^8.2.0",
    "express": "^4.17.1",
    "mocha": "^8.2.1"

Thanks again.

Kind regards,

Hi Alessia,

Thanks for taking a look. I managed to solve it by using replit instead of glitch.

Kind regards,
