Why can't I preview my tacocat app on Workspaces?

When I try to click the 'eye' icon to display and preview my web app for 'The Challenge' code challenge in the 'Build a Social Network' portion of the Python track, all I get is a screen saying that the workspace isn't available. I've tried running and refreshing the app and then clicking the eye icon, but it still shows the same message. Any tips? Thanks!

Are you able to run the server? I can't seem to start the server or find the code that would do it. And without the server running, that "unavailable" message is what I'd expect.

And should the "app_tests" pass? I tried that also but 2 tests failed.

I didn't realize until I saw the code that this is for a course I haven't done yet myself. Perhaps someone else will have more insight, maybe Chris Freeman?
