JavaScript AngularJS Basics (1.x) Using Angular's Built In Directives Using ng-repeat to inject HTML for every data element

ng-repeat does not work when running on local server

my code is almost the exact copy as the one in this lesson besides i didn't touch the <h1>tag. A few courses back i downloaded ng-inspector but had to run this project thru a local server to get ng-inspector to work. Now when i get to the point where Huston is showing how to use ng-repeat and i go to check it out. Nothing appears. Only thing shows is the <h1> and the gray bar. I'm using atom as my editor and when i open my index file in the browser BOOM everything is working like it show beside the ng-inspector. Any ideas why?

angular.module("todoListApp", []) // Second parameter defines the application dependencies also the empty array tells angular to create the application
.controller('mainCtrl', function($scope) {
    $scope.helloWorld = function() {
      console.log("hello controller");

    $scope.todos = [
