Why a HTML exercise is downloaded as a JSON file?


I just started freecodecamp. I did this exercise related to HTML: https://learn.freecodecamp.org/responsive-web-design/basic-html-and-html5/say-hello-to-html-elements

But there is something weird. This looks like a pure and simple HTML file. However, when I click on download the file that I get is not a HTML one, it is a JSON file.

Why does this happen?


Presumably, that’s the way that FCC saves challenges internally. If you don’t want to deal with parsing the json file, you could always just copy the contents of the editor and pasting it in a file yourself.

OK, thank you. It would be a boring task. So I am just going to save it this way.
