iOS Build a Weather App with Swift (Retired) Pulling Data From the Web Creating a URL

Swift course code challenge "Pulling data from the web"

Hi guys,

I need some help with this code challenge:

At Treehouse we have our own API which can be accessed via a base URL that looks like: https://api.teamtreehouse.com/. Create a base URL named treehouseBaseURL using the NSURL class to retrieve user information from the Treehouse API. Note: This is purely an example and not a functional API.

Here is what I wrote:

import Foundation

let courseID = 25

let treehouseBaseURL = "https://api.teamtreehouse.com/"

let information = NSURL(string:"", relativeToURL: treehouseBaseURL)

Any help is appreciated!

Hi ,

The constant treehouseBaseURL also needs to be defined as an NSURL instance as the relativeToURL arguments expects an instance of NSURL.

let treehouseBaseURL = NSURL(string: "https://api.teamtreehouse.com/")

Thanks Chris. Much appreciated.

The quiz seems to be undergoing maintenance at the moment, I will try again later.
