The problem is related to the position of your <script> .. </script> within the html document.

No body element exists yet at the moment that your script is being executed. That means that d3.select("body") will be empty, and no div.chart is being appended.

Try to move your <script> .. </script> inside the <body> .. </body> part. This will guarantee that the body element exists when your code is being executed
