JavaScript Node.js Basics 2017 Building a Command Line Application Making a GET Request with https


I don't understand one piece of code

var http = require("http");

var request = http.get("http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response){
  console.log(response.statusCode);  <---

Hi Rostyk... What aspect do you not understand? The http.get function requests the JSON file in your URL. Your function is called as data gets passed back. The response.statusCode allows you to identify if the data was passed successfully, or if the URL is doesn't exist, etc.
