Why not working? My code is perfect.

Why isn’t this working? It should be perfect.

ERROR MESSAGE: “SyntaxError: Unexpected token”


const https = require('https');

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

function getProfile(username){

const request = https.get(${username}.json, response => { let body = ""; response.on('data', data => { body += data.toString(); });

response.on('end', () => { const profile = JSON.parse(body); printMessage(username, profile.badges.length, profile.points.JavaScript); });



getProfile("chalkers"); getProfile("alenaholligan");

I'm pretty sure that there is no such thing as perfect code. hehe

Don't you at least need tics for your template code?

If there was "perfect" code, you'd never have to ask why it wasn't working. :smirk:
