Running a Downloaded Build

You cannot load your application by opening the index.html file in a browser or from a file:// url. You must use a local webserver to load the index.html file using http:// or https://.

There are many options for running a web server. Here are a few:

  • Easy: Install Python and run the command python -m SimpleHTTPServer from the same folder as your application’s index.html. Then point your browser to http://localhost:8000
  • Intermediate: Install XAMPP. Although this is a full PHP development environment, it includes an easy to configure Apache server.
  • Advanced: Install Apache or nginx as a standalone service.

the problem is, is that the first one (easy) doesnt work anymore. installing python would most likely install python 3 or higher, and since python 3, python -m SimpleHTTPServer, doesnt work anymore. instead, you have to use python -m http.server and then conect to localhost:8000. just soemthing to look out for
