did anyone get the roll dice button to work?

i was hoping after i copied the files over and generated the app.js file the webpage would work. unfortunately i received these console errors:

app.js:1 Uncaught ReferenceError: Dice is not defined at app.js:1 at app.js:1 (anonymous) @ app.js:1 (anonymous) @ app.js:1 :64351/favicon.ico:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

if anyone got this app to work please let me know how, or any suggestions to get it working would be appreciated. id like to use it in a craps simulation.

I actually have the same problem. No answers yet as far as I can see.

edit: I figured it out...maybe. You might be opening the index.html located in the src/ folder. Try running the index.html that is in the build/ folder instead. Worked for me.

Hi Adam,

I actually got the same error when I ran 'node build/app.js' in the console. But then I just opened the preview by clicking the Preview button in the Workspaces and clicked on the first file on the page, i.e. 'build/' and there was the dice rolling for me when I clicked the button. Not sure if this is what you are asking about, just trying to be helpful :) We are all in this together after all :) Happy coding and debugging!
