Managing Packages with Npm - How to Use package.json, the Core of Any Node.js Project or npm Package


I’ve tried it but it didn’t help !!


same issue
did you solve it


Nope…still facing same issue


It worked with the "Share you App " url for me



I’m stuck with this. Can you post the screenshot of the same ?


First did you cloned the glitch from FCC?
If have cloned your glitch app from FCC and update the package.json and use that share your app URL,
then the test will pass sucessfully.



I am currently experiencing the same issue.
I’ve done everything correctly but I can’t get it to pass.


I have the same issue with this challenge ,did you find the solucion guys?


Just clone the repo from freecodecamp, then using “Share your app”, then paste the link of the project to the solution form, it will pass, I have just passed by doing these step!

  1. It’s simple, clone this project.
  2. Change name

  3. Submit answer

Managing Packages with NPM Challenge : tests aren't working

Works fine, thanks !
I was sharing the direct link to the file instead of the application.
Any way to improve the Freecodecamp doc with the screenshots you sent me ?
I’d rather work locally and push to Github though so if you have a clue, I’ll gladly take it too !
Thanks again,


Now it can’t find the “licence” key even though it’s in the file…


You should use the link of the live application. There is a button “Show live”. Then copy the link of the new opened window and put that link.


Hi @trungducng , which repo do we clone?
I never saw any introduction to Glitch prior to this lesson. What’s the link to the repo?


Hi, folks, I think you just need to open your app in browser via shared link of your app to make app working before you submit a challenge with your link.

I am still facing the issue: even though after following instructions form screen shots above. could any help pleas?!/babu-npm-intro?path=package.json:6:23


This is ridiculous. The instructions are horrible. Can’t get it to work. In addition. the ask for help button on the challenge does nothing. There seems to be mass confusion with this challenge. A million threads with no clear answer.


@mscanza I have to agree these are by far the hardest challenges for me as well, I just keep trying different stuff until it passes. I think glitch may have some glitches… but I really like MongoDB Lab (I have used it to demo prototypes at work). I think the challenge is coming up with an environment where the challenges can be worked that is free and open sourced. It would probably be easier if they set up an EC2 type instance in the cloud and built the challenge environment in the cloud but that costs a lot of money.


Hi Johnny, I actually figured out the source of much of the confusion. FCC is going to adjust the instructions. Make sure you login to Glitch from GitHub, not Facebook or any other options, this fixed everything, allowing the template to import correctly from github. Logout of glitch and back in using GitHub oauth.
