Getting the Response Body

Without renaming any of the variables, modify the data callback to concatenate the stream of data to the responseBody.

app.js
const https = require("https");
const request = https.get("https://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", response => {
    let responseBody = "";

    response.on("data", dataChunk => {

    });

    response.on("", () => {
        console.log(responseBody);
    });

});

request.on("error", error => {
    console.error(error.message);
});

It doesn't look like you've started yet. For task 1, add just one statement on line 6 (currently blank) that will append the incoming data to "responseBody".
