JavaScript Node.js Basics (2014) Building a Command Line Application Getting the Response Body

Nothing working except statusCode

Hi, I have been following this video and couldn't get anything showing on the console except for the first statusCode log.

None of the on methods worked either on treehouse console or my own terminal Do you know why this could be? (I made sure that my code was exactly as on the screen.)

Hi Trixi, Even i was having the same issue. but a there is trick to have everything sorted. i guess the tutorial was not updated with the changes made in the Teamtreehouse website. The teamtreehouse website now uses a 'HTTPS' request and not 'HTTP' request as shown in the tutorial. Please update your code as follows

var http = require('https');

var username = 'yourusername';

var request = http.get('https://teamtreehouse.com/'+username+'.json', function(response) { console.log(response.socket._handle.bytesRead);
response.on('data', function(chunk){ console.log('BODY: ' + chunk); }); });

request.on('error', function(error) { console.error(error.message); });

Hi Trixi,

I would need to view the code in your app.js file to view where the issue is. Can you add your code to this thread please?
