UiKit and Json File

I'm trying to make an autocomplete textbox on my site. I'm using the autocomplete component on UiKit. I can reference their json file at: and it works.

However, I created the exact same file and hosted it here: and it doesn't work. In Chrome, I get the following error:

jquery-1.11.1.min.js:4 POST 400 (Bad Request)

send @ jquery-1.11.1.min.js:4

ajax @ jquery-1.11.1.min.js:4

request @ autocomplete.min.js:2

handle @ autocomplete.min.js:2

(anonymous) @ autocomplete.min.js:2

a @ uikit.min.js:2

setTimeout (async)

(anonymous) @ uikit.min.js:2

dispatch @ jquery-1.11.1.min.js:3

r.handle @ jquery-1.11.1.min.js:3

Any idea what could be wrong?

Thank you.

Hi Phil,

For the files hosted in the file storage of your app the only operation you can do is GET. When your script sends a POST request to the file, does it expect that the file (script) will do something with the request?




No, I don't believe so. I'm not sure I can specify a GET request instead of a POST. So, I'll basically have to use something other than the UiKit component if I can't change it to a GET request?


If all it needs is to fetch data, then it must use GET. Sending a POST request is incorrect for that use-case.
