Node Basic app.js error

When I run app.js in the Node Basics course I get this /home/treehouse/workspace/app.js:31

SyntaxError: Unexpected end of input

So I remove it and I still an error, please help. Here's my code.

// Problem: We need a simple way to look at a user's badge count and JavaScript points // Solution: Use Node.js to connect to Treehouse's API to get profile information to print out //require https module const https = require('https'); const username = "chalkers";

//Function to print message to console function printMessage(username, badgeCount, points) { const message = ${username} has ${badgeCount} total badges(s) and ${points} in JavaScript; console.log(message); }

// Connect to the API URL (https://teamtreehouse.com/username.json) const request = https.get(https://teamtreehouse.com/${username}.json, response => { let body = ""; // Read the data response.on('data', data => { body += data.toString(); });

response.on('end', () => { //Parse the data console.log(body); console.log(typeof body); //Print the data });

It would help a lot if the code was formatted for the forum with Markdown.
Even better, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here.

Much easier to see with the formatted code!

So on line 14, there's the beginning of a function call (https.get) and also the beginning of a callback function. But the matching brace for the callback and the matching parenthesis for the call are both missing from the file!

So after line 26, there should be another line that looks just like it.

Ok, will do

Here's the screen shot https://w.trhou.se/vc4wm1x9pg

Thanks a million, I was going crazy looking at the code.
