"Use the .env File" Challenge

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Not sure why my app isn’t giving me credit. I’ve properly used the Secrets (Environment variables) to the appropriate key and value for the challenge.

var express = require('express');
var app = express();
const mySecret = process.env['MESSAGE_STYLE']

console.log(typeof app);

const indexPath = __dirname + "/views/index.html";
app.get('/', (req, res) => {

app.use('/public', express.static(__dirname + "/public"))

const myObject = () => ({message: "Hello json"});
app.get("/json", (req, res) => {
  if (process.env.MESSAGE_STYLE === "uppercase") {
  else res.json(myObject().message);

 module.exports = app;

I figured it out. I was responding with the string instead of the object.
