I had the same issue and figured out we need to see the app on a server so you can type in your terminal inside your application folder:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer visit http://localhost:8000/

this should fix it

Thank you this helped, However i'm running of my Mac and thus did the following;

Open Terminal and ran the following command

npm install httpserver -g

Once installed cd into your current directory and run the command


NB! :This all takes into account that you do have Node installed on your computer
