Instructions say to:

To begin, let’s hook the router up to the main application. At the end of app.js , use the spicesRouter for all /spice-racks/:spiceRackId/spices routes.

Here’s my code:

app.use('/spice-racks/:spickeRackId/spices', spicesRouter);

When i click “Check work” it asks me if I connect “spiceRouter” with app.use(). Um, first of all there is no spiceRouter, what the heck am I missing here?

There are a lot of times when the coder implementing the tests misspelled something and it will throw an error. I know my code is correct and i end up clicking on solution only to see my code exactly the same as before. This is frustrating.

So what am I doing wrong here?

never mind! I found my own typo ‘:spickeRackId’ should be ‘:spiceRackId’ lol yikes. i went on a rant for nothing… ok not nothing, but sometimes the tests don’t work.

I think this section should be taught or put before the previous one

Can any develop team members consider to adopt this idea ??

Typo in last sentence. Should say “for creating complicated APIs”
