Open a terminal and navigate to the folder
Start a simple server using python
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
More details here.
In a browser navigate to the local server's address (default is 0.0.0.:8000)
- Did you start a server?
If you just opened the index.html page you might have an error in the console regarding origin requests. Right click anywhere on the screen, click Inspect and then look at the Console.
Does it have the following error? Example screenshot
Failed to load file:///Users/.../res/flappyAtlas/atlas.txt: Cross origin requests are only supported for protocol schemes: http, data, chrome, chrome-extension, https."
The issue: The page tries to load a file from disk but most modern browsers block that as a security risk.
Solution: Run a local server. Use the instructions above to start a server locally in 2 minutes.
