To get help with your code, you need to show the code itself. Perhaps the best way to share code is to make a snapshot of your workspace and post just the link to it here.

I had the same problem.

Change line 10 in api/routes to let users = [] ; instead of const users = [] ;

I noticed api/routes was using const instead of let to create the Users variable .

After changing the assignment to let it worked. Seems like const was not allowing the app push into the array.

I received that POST http... error code b/c I did not turn on the express server. Hope that helps
