I have an issue trying to use javascript to get the circulating supply by requesting data from Tzscan API:

HTML code to request the circulating supply:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  <title>JS Bin</title>
  <h1>There Tezos Circulating : </h1>
  <div id="getapi"></div>

Javascript Code to get the data from the API:

  function createNode(element) {
    return document.createElement(element);

  function append(parent, el) {
    return parent.appendChild(el);

  const ul = document.getElementById('getapi');
  const url = 'http://api6.tzscan.io/v3/supply';
    .then((resp) => resp.json())
    .then(function(data) {
      let span = createNode('span');
      span.innerHTML = `${data.circulating_supply/1000000}`;
      append(ul, span);
    .catch(function(error) {

The problem is that somehow it works when I create a HTML file locally but not online.

  • it'll help to also include the errors you are getting. I know we could probably look at your codepen but for the sake of the question, it's best include the errors in the question. – Frank Mar 25 at 3:20

You've encountered a mixed content error. Requests can't be a mixture of http and https, they need to be all of the same, preferably https. Just change the const url = 'http://api6.tzscan.io/v3/supply'; to be https

const url = 'https://api6.tzscan.io/v3/supply';

.then(resp => resp.json())
.then(({dls}) => {
    let span = createNode('span');
    span.innerHTML = dls;
    append(ul, span);
