Not Console Logging for me

Hi there, I am following along by writing the code in Sublime Text. I am not getting anything to show up in the console when I click on save.

Here is my code:


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <title>Jim's Todo List</title>
    <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-contoller="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="helloWorld()">Save</a>
        <a href="" class="delete">delete</a>
    <script src="vendor/angular.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="scripts/app.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


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

In your html, where you are declaring the controller, there is a misspelling in the word "controller":

<div ng-contoller="mainCtrl" class="list">

should be

<div ng-controller="mainCtrl" class="list">

Fixing that resolves your issue.
