Same problem here. Non of the status files in public are being found. Getting errors in the console in the browser. Any ideas?

Paths are relative to the directory from where you launch your node process. http://expressjs.com/en/starter/static-files.html

Try

app.use('/static', express.static(__dirname + '/public'));
