Body not showing up

Greetings! I have entered absolutely the same code as in the video, but I don't get the Body in the output. Just the "Hello World!" and statusCode is printed but not the Body at all. The console doesn't show any errors at all, and I've tried waiting but nothing shows up. https://w.trhou.se/ao3vy859bp Thank You! Regards, Samarth

Hi Samarth,

This post will probably solve your issue. The short answer is that Treehouse switched to https (vs http) a couple of months ago, and you simply need to change your urls and require statement to reflect that.

Best, Cena

This has worked for me. Thanks. Change all http to https: var http > var https require ("http") > require ("https") http.get > https.get http://team... > https://team..

Weird, it's working for me. Anyway, try this:

Thank You! Regards, Samarth

I just did

response.on('data', function(chunk) {
      console.log('BODY: ' + chunk);

heres the rest

var http = require('https');

var request = http.get('https://teamtreehouse.com/robohat.json', function(response){
    console.log('status code:', response.statusCode);
    console.log('headers:', JSON.stringify(response.headers))
    response.setEncoding('utf8');
    response.on('data', function(chunk) {
      console.log('BODY: ' + chunk);
    });
});

request.on("error", function(error){ console.error(error.message); });
