Use the .env File help needed

Tell us what’s happening:
I have no idea why this isn’t working, i have the variable set in my env file but it still doesn’t do anything. Any advice?

Your code so far
if (process.env.MESSAGE_STYLE==‘uppercase’){
app.get(’/json’, function(req, res) {
return res.json({ ‘message’: ‘HELLO JSON’ })
} else {
app.get(’/json’, function(req, res) {
return res.json({ ‘message’: ‘Hello json’ })

Challenge: Use the .env File

Link to the challenge:

Do you have the package installed? What does process.env.MESSAGE_STYLE log out?

I do have it installed on glitch and it logs out uppercase

Try a triple === for comparison and then log out in that block. Does the code run?

Tried it doesn’t change anything

console.log before your app.get, does it run?

It logs out uppercase and when i visit {“message”:“HELLO JSON”} shows up as it should but when i check the solution it fails. Changing the variable does change the message so it should work just fine right?
