JavaScript Retrieving Entries from a Table

article.publishedAt is not a function

When I want to list all articles I get this error:

article.publishedAt() article.publishedAt is not a function TypeError: /Users/acandael/Tutorials/javascript-tech-degree/sequelize_blog/views/articles/by_line.jade:4 2| = article.author 3| | |

4| = article.publishedAt()

I double checked the code in the models file, but I can't find any typos: .... instanceMethods: { publishedAt: function() { return dateFormat(this.createdAt, 'dddd, mmmm dS, yyyy, h:MM TT'); }, shortDescription: function() { return this.body.length > 30 ? this.body.substr(0, 30) + '...' : this.body; } }

Anyone else got this error?

Could you provide a link to a workspace snapshot?

@Steven I pushed my code to github:

https://github.com/acandael/sequelize-blog

the error I get is:

TypeError: /Users/acandael/Tutorials/javascript-tech-degree/sequelize_blog/views/articles/by_line.jade:4

thanks for your help!

greetings,

Anthony

The repo is good for just sharing the code, but a workspace allows you to share the complete environment which makes it easy to replicate the issue. Otherwise, someone must first try to reproduce the build environment, which might be a significant task if they are not already working with the same project or one that uses all the same libraries.

That's just the preview URL. To share the workspace itself, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to that here.

Hey Anthony, did you ever sort this out? I'm getting the exact same error.
