Pass the posts object to your template, naming it "posts"

What am I doing wrong in this code?

const express = require('express');
const posts = require('./mock/posts.json');

const app = express();

app.set('view engine', 'pug');
app.set('views', __dirname + '/templates')

app.get('/', (req, res) => {
  res.render('main',posts = {});


app.listen(3000, () => {
  console.log("The frontend server is running on port 3000!");

Now you give posts to an empty object.

res.render('main', {posts});


res.render('main', {posts : posts});

Thanks, I think the wording is the question is not very clear.
