I just found it. Apparently switching off Brave’s ad-blocker worked.

No it is not that, replit does not always refresh correctly. I changed the code, yet the old response appears. Refreshing everything makes no difference.

It doesn’t have live update, which mean you need to manually update the server.
(You need to stop and re-run the repl)

Oh is that it! Thank you so much. I was so used to liveserver that I forgot about this.

And with Glitch? There it seems to update, but the test fails. I am submitting this url for the assignment with environment variable MESSAGE_STYLE=uppercase:
The response is working fine, but the test fails

the test tolds you to serve a text Hello Express not a JSON object

res.send('Hello Express')


res.json({message:"HELLO JSON"})
