JavaScript Node.js Basics Building a Command Line Application Requesting data with https

Getting a 404 when calling https://teamtreehouse.com/username.json

I've tried using JavaScript as outlined in the tutorial

const https = require('https');
function getProfile() {
    const request = https.get(
        "https://teamtreehouse.com/frankgenova.json",
        (response) => {
            console.dir(response.statusCode);
        }
    );
}
getProfile();

and with Python (as a sanity check)

import requests

r = requests.get('https://teamtreehouse.com/frankgenova.json')
print(r.status_code)

both approaches return a 404.

Your profile is currently hidden, based on your profile settings. Go to you privacy settings page, and check this box:

ā€ƒ:white_check_mark: Allow everyone to see your profile

That will allow the server to handle the request.

There's no white space in your user name. Use: https://teamtreehouse.com/lauradangler.json.
