Nodejs question of type input with npm inquirer not working

0 votes

This is my first time using npm inquirer.

I'm using a code that looks like this:

const inquirer = require("inquirer");

const questions = [
  {
    type: "checkbox",
    name: "collections.telemetria",
    message: "Select collections of database telemetria",
    choices: [
      "chimera-11/14/2019,-4:22:38-PM",
      "chimera-11/14/2019,-4:28:26-PM"
    ]
  },
  {
    type: "checkbox",
    name: "collections.testa",
    message: "Select collections of database testa",
    choices: ["testa_c"]
  }
];

async function main() {
  const collections = (await inquirer.prompt(questions)).collections;
  console.log("collections:", collections);
  const outPath = await inquirer.prompt([
    {
      type: "input",
      name: "outPath",
      default: "./",
      message: "Insert the output path"
    }
  ]).outPath;
  console.log(outPath);
}
main();

The issue is that when it comes to answering the type input question, the phrase undefined shows, and I am unable to provide any input.

The right code should be:

const outPath = (await inquirer.prompt([
    {
      type: "input",
      name: "outPath",
      default: "./",
      message: "Insert the output path"
    }
  ])).outPath;
  console.log(outPath);
