Repl.it error in npm challenge #1

Hello, just FYI.

While going through NPM challenge #1 on repl.it I received the following error which prevented compilation:

internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:638
throw err;
^

Error: Cannot find module ‘express’
at Function.Module._resolveFilename (internal/modules/cjs/loader.js:636:15)`

What fixed it for me was to manually launch “npm install express” in the shell.
I am reporting it in case the challenge repl repository needs attention from the mods.

Hey there,

Thank you, for taking the time to mention your experience.

Unfortunately, this is not something we can reliably control, AFAIK. Sometimes, after cloning a repository to Repl.it, the packages are automatically installed, and sometimes they are not.

It is to be expected that things like this could happen, and we still recommend the READ-SEARCH-ASK method, wherever possible.

Good to know, thanks @Sky020.
