JavaScript React Basics First Steps in React Understanding JSX

Stuck on the text/babel section; likely related to http local server

I get a CORS messaage saying it can't read my file and use my JSX stuff. I'm not sure how I am supposed to proceed with the course. I've installed both python and node.js and tried running both local servers and neither of them work for me.

I'm having this same issue! Having trouble proceeding with the course without a fix

I downloaded MAMP and made the react directory the localhost one. It works perfectly then

I was having this same issue, but this fixed it for me:

After running the local python server by putting this in the command line:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Click this link: http://localhost:8000

This will ensure that you're actually accessing your project through the server you're running, instead of just opening it in your browser from the file navigator. Hope this helps!
