If anybody else is struggling with the same problem - problem must be in the babel script you've pasted into the html. Check for misspelling and additional spaces.

Or just copy and paste this again:

<script type="text/babel" src="./app.js"></script>

Adam Fields I am having the same problem. My code looks correct, but nothing is showing in the browser, nor is the code showing up in the dev tools. Did you find a solution?

Update, I still don't know what I did, but I went ahead and downloaded the project files for this lesson and copy pasted into my workspace. Its working just fine now.

I must have made some stupid little one character mistake somewhere in the script links. Those are the worst!
