I also had this but if click on the folder section (left hand side) and click button 'refresh' the folder should appear.

I'm still having issue accessing it though as it says i have an internet connection issue. This is obviously not true but unclear why it's happening


i did install by using command npm install. This installed all the available modules i believe, however there are still time out persistent

is disconnects often? I don't see it as an internet connection issue but rather a processing power issue. Any ideas?
