app.get('/', (req, res) => { res.render('main', { posts:"posts" }); });

app.listen(3000, () => { console.log("The frontend server is running on port 3000!"); });

app.js
const express = require('express');
const posts = require('./mock/posts.json');

const app = express();

app.set('view engine', 'pug');
app.set('views', __dirname + '/templates')

app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  res.render('main', { posts:"posts" });

You'll need to pass in the variable posts and not the string "posts".

I do pass variable posts with the string "posts" If that's not what question ask than what is the question asking?

res.render('main', { posts: posts });
   // or the ES6 syntax:
res.render('main', { posts });

I use {posts} and it works but where did they define posts variable?
