I tried making the changes but its still ignoring the if condition and giving me the else condition. Can you please check for once where exactly I am wrong please.

This has to be “in the /json GET route handler”:

const mySecret = process.env['MESSAGE_STYLE']

Think about when the script runs…

  1. Script is executed from top to bottom
  2. mySecret is defined as being 'uppercase'
  3. app is defined with what to do when certain requests are made

If I make a request, it does not matter when or how, the value of mySecret has been set in stone, because const mySecret = ... only runs once (on initial start-up). No matter how many times I make a request which causes the callback function to run in the route handler, the if condition will always be true.

Hope this clarifies
