Did you enter node app.js in the console prior to the preview?

treehouse:~/workspace$ node app.js                                                       
Server running at http://<workspace-url>/      

Yes typed in the command to execute the server in Node.js.

Server running at http://<workspace-url>/
/home/treehouse/workspace/router.js:18
const username = request.url.replace("/", "");
^

ReferenceError: request is not defined
at Object.user (/home/treehouse/workspace/router.js:18:20)
at Server.<anonymous> (/home/treehouse/workspace/app.js:11:12)
at emitTwo (events.js:126:13)
at Server.emit (events.js:214:7)
at parserOnIncoming (_http_server.js:660:12)

This is what happens to me, even though using Treehouse own workspace.

Is request a parameter of the function, or did you use req?
