JavaScript Node.js Basics (2014) Building a Command Line Application Making a GET Request with http

"Bummer! The callback doesn't have 'response' as a named parameter"?

Now, in the http.get() call pass in an anonymous function as a callback with the parameter of response. This function is the second parameter in the get call.

my code:

var http = require("http");

http.get("http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response) {


Why isn't this passing?

var http = require("http");

http.get("http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(reponse) {

Also, it looks like you have the correct answer above your response. If you're running on linux or mac, it might be a good time to look into diff. You can diff the two answers and find the issue right away. You'll be surprised by how much this will help you in the future. I don't know how to do this on windows, but I'm sure google can help. Good luck!

oh my gosh >< it's always the smallest things like this that cause me the most pain.

thank you! :)
