I get the following error on all my Chapter 2 exercises.

XMLHttpRequest cannot load http://devices.webofthings.io/pi/sensors/temperature. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'null' is therefore not allowed access.

Help would be much appreciated.

Hello, thanks for your remark. Quick question: what browser type and version are you using? Do you have the same result when trying with other browsers (recent version firefox/safari/chrome)?

We will look into this, but in the meanwhile, the easiest thing you could do (and should work) is to simply open the files directly (double-click on them so they have a file://... URL) as opposed to host in on a server (apache, etc.).

We'd love to know how it works.

Thanks Vlad. I had the same problem with all browsers. Using file:// did not work either.

Hi there,

We'd like to help but have troubles reproducing the errors. Which operating system do you use? Did you try opening the file in the browser directly (file:/// or C:... on Windows, drag and drop should also work) or do you publish it via a Web server?

Also: did you get the latest version of the code? We pushed several fixes lately.

We tested again all the examples on Windows and Mac OSx with Firefox (>41) and Chrome (>46) which are the suggested browsers. Safari (>9) should also work.
Internet Explorer is unfortunately not supported (because of several incompatibilities among which CORS which is an essential feature for the WoT). We added a note in the book to mention that.

Let us know how that works.
