how to write angularjs code for an application in ipad. that is how to refer the ipad database. Anyone can please help me ?

Hi all,

This maybe sounds stupid: I’m stuck at the very first instruction:

In app.js , type in the contents exactly as you see here:

var app = angular.module("myApp", []);

When I do this and click on Run, an error occurs. What am I doing wrong?


Same error here! Even the solution I get from the site is not working…

I am getting the same… even if I copy the code from the solution.

Why is this??

I have the same problem, as soon as I click run, the error occurs, independent of if any code has been added

Having the same problem (on a Mac, Mojave)
It shows that the problem is related to PhantomJS:

"ee[31m08 07 2019 09:17:14.503:ERROR [launcher]: e[39mCannot start PhantomJS
,e[32m08 07 2019 09:17:14.510:INFO [launcher]: e[39mTrying to start PhantomJS again (1/2).

,e[31m08 07 2019 09:17:14.517:ERROR "

If I use the button to give me the solution by CodeAcademy, the application runs fine (although if I type the exact same code by trying it doesn’t work

I guess this is a mac problem, or some application which doesn’t run properly on Mac since I’m fine on Windows 10. This won’t be helpful though, sorry.

no its not stupid it happens it probably just computer problems or issues with codecademy ive had it happen before too don’t worry mate.
