Hi! I get a "renderer.view is not a function" error from this assignment.


const fs = require('fs');

function view(templateName, values, response) { fs.readFile('./views/' + templateName + '.html', function (error, fileContents) { if (error) throw error; response.write(fileContents);

module.exports.view = view;


//router.js (the part that matters here):

const renderer = require("./renderer.js");

function home(request, response) { if (request.url === "/") { response.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'}); renderer.view("header", {}, response); response.write("Search\n"); response.end("Footer\n"); } }

Problem solved! Had the module.exports.view = view; inside the curly braces :)
