Running localhost doesn't appear the same as in the video.
When I run the localhost environment, my chat interface seems even more bare than the video example. Specifically, there doesn't appear to be a "what Watson understands" output in the right sidebar. https://cl.ly/1Y1V2u1N1540 I'm not sure what would account for this difference.

If you haven't resolved yet, you might want to double check your .env files. Make sure to not include the <> with your workspace ID, username, or password.

Can you elaborate more about your solution? I'm having the same issue where I'm not connecting with Bluemix. I am not getting any data back from the service. I am getting a 400 bad request in my browser console. Please help!

Hey Chris, thanks for the response.
No, I have not set it up through CLI tool, but isn't the instance created in the video enough? On the readme, it reads: "You can use an existing instance of the Conversation service. Otherwise, follow these steps"... these steps being basically the CLI steps you're referring to.
running this command: 'cf create-service conversation free my-conversation-service', seems just like creating an instance of the service through the Watson Dashboard (which were the steps in the video)
