All my todos are gone

I'm trying to follow along, and it seems to me all has been followed correctly, but clearly I must be missing something.

Right now, I see no todo items, although the ng-repeat is working

My code is as follows:

angular.module("todoListApp", [])
  .controller('mainController', function($scope, dataService){

    dataService.getTodos(function(response){
        console.log(response.data);
        $scope.todos = response;
    });

  })
  .service('dataService', function($http) {
    this.getTodos = function(callback){
        $http.get('js/mock/todos.json')
        .then(callback)
    }
  })
;

My todo list shows five empty rows.

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

HI

Try adding .data to the response your assigning to $scope.todos

dataService.getTodos(function(response){
        console.log(response.data);
        $scope.todos = response.data;
    });

That should probably fix it.
