Sample apps sign-in not working


#1

I’m trying to play around with the sample apps from the docs (“hello world” and “todo list”) but I can’t get the sign-in to work when running these apps locally. I’m using the web-app browser in Firefox on Linux.

I cloned the “todo list” repo (https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack-todos) and after running npm install and npm start, the application opens up in my browser on a localhost port. Next, when I click on “Sign in with Blockstack”, the browser opens up https://browser.blockstack.org and shows me the following error message.

Any idea what I can do to get past this? Thanks!

Is it a problem with mixed content, i.e. the manifest is served from http, but the borwser.blockstack.org is served from https? Firefox only allows mixed content from http://127.0.0.1. You can see that in the console log.

Does it work if you launch the app from http://127.0.0.1:8080 instead of localhost?

Ah cool, that was easy. 127.0.0.1 works. Thanks!
