SyntaxError: Unexpected token (


I admire the efforts the glitch team has put into the platform. I am using glitch for a while now and it’s a wonderful platform. I am getting an error in app.js:18 in project bright-bread.

app.get('/', async (req, res) => {
SyntaxError: Unexpected token (
    at createScript (vm.js:56:10)
    at Object.runInThisContext (vm.js:97:10)
    at Module._compile (module.js:549:28)
    at Object.Module._extensions..js (module.js:586:10)
    at Module.load (module.js:494:32)
    at tryModuleLoad (module.js:453:12)
    at Function.Module._load (module.js:445:3)
    at Module.runMain (module.js:611:10)
    at run (bootstrap_node.js:387:7)
    at startup (bootstrap_node.js:153:9)

I would appreciate it if someone from glitch could look into the issue.

Seems like you are using older version of node, and its not recognizing async so your best bet is to use node verison 8+
