I can't run the codecombat on my mac


Hi I’m a student who will join in GSOC 2014.
I’m trying to run codecombat on my Mac, and I followed all guides from

Everything is working on(mongodb, brunch and coco-dev-server), but when I try to connect "http://localhost:3000, my chrome browser console displays those bugs:

Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined transition.js:56
Uncaught ReferenceError: Backbone is not defined
Uncaught ReferenceError: Backbone is not defined

I know it’s a very basic question and I included jquery, underscore and backbone.js, but it displayed other javascript errors.
Can I ask what’s wrong?

my mac: OS X 10.9.1
chrome : Version 33.0.1750.149

Thank you



Did you install bower and run bower install once?



I just before found and tried to 'bowel install ', then everything becomes fine.
Anyway thank you for your reply adi2412. ( But in the development guide, there’s nothing mentioned about ‘bowel install’. why? )


It is mentioned in the Do-it-yourself way. I haven’t tried the automatic setup method given, so I’m not sure if it installs bower dependencies or not. Which method did you follow?



I followed automatic setup method for mac
