ripple emulator not starting in chrome

I can not seem to get the ripple emulator to start when I open my "index.html" file in Chrome. If I start up a normal website like yahoo.com, the emulator will fire up.

 

Is there anything special that you need to do? Does my "index.html" need to be on a server somewhere in order to get it to run?

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: ripple emulator not starting in chrome

Hi there,

 

When you visit a URL in Chrome, you must click the Ripple icon New Bitmap Image.png and Enable the plugin on that page. This icon should appear in the top-right corner of Chrome once the plugin is installed.

 

Generally I would also recommend that you are hosting your files on a personal web server (even if it means accessing it via localhost in Chrome) as opposed to dragging/dropping files directly into Chrome.

I do click on the ripple icon.

How do you set up a localhost in chrome? I'm using a Mac.

Re: ripple emulator not starting in chrome

You need to set up a local webserver and deploy the files to there. Then in chrome you do something like http://localhost/baconApp and it loads like a normal website.

 

Maybe use something like MAMP? Quick and easy.

Re: ripple emulator not starting in chrome

I actuallly stumbled across MAMP last night while scowering the web. It works! I'm glad to see that I'm on the right path.

Thanks for your help!
