It's not printing to the console for me...

Any ideas? Here is my forked workspace: https://w.trhou.se/rcl53e0j3t


angular.module("todoListApp", [])
.controller('mainCtrl', function($scope) {
  $scope.helloWorld = function() {
    console.log("Hello there! This is the helloWorld controller function in the mainCtrl!");


<!doctype html>
  <html lang="en">
    <link href='https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Varela+Round' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    <link href='styles/main.css' rel='stylesheet' type="text/css">
  <body ng-app="todoListApp">
    <h1>My TODOs</h1>
    <div ng-controller="mainCtrl" class="list">
      <input type="checkbox"/>
      <label class="editing-label">A sample todo!</label>
      <input class="editing-label" type="text"/>
      <div class="actions">
        <a href="">Edit</a>
        <a href="" ng-click="hellowWorld()">Save</a>
        <a href="" class="Delete">Delete</a>

In your html you spelt the function name wrong. You have 2 w's instead of one.
