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

Challenge 3 of 4

For this challenge, it's asking me to make the get request. In the video, Chalkers has a var request in front of it, the challenge doesn't want that. However, when I pass the code, it says: "Unexpected Token: )"

WTF?

app.js
var http = require("http");
http.get = ("http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response));

var http = require('http');
http.get('http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json', function(response){});

You're missing the {} for function definition.

I actually did that and it told me no, so I was trying other different things for it. Funny thing was that I went to the next challenge and finished that, but before hand, it did have the right code for this challenge, so I copy+paste before finishing. Then went to this challenge, removed the 'var request' part of it, then passed it.

Always remember to define a function like

function foo() {
    // Your code goes here
}

if you don't write the curly brackets it will result in an error.
