React js fetch API

I am learning React.js and trying to fetch API like this

constructor() {
    super();

    this.state = {person: []};
}

componentDidMount() {
    fetch('https://randomuser.me/api/?results=500', {mode: 'no-cors'})
            .then(results => {
                return results.json();
            })
            .then(data => {
                let person = (data.results || []).map((pic) => {
                    return(
                            <div key={pic.results}></div>
                            )
                })

                this.setState({person: person});
                console.log("state", this.state.person);
            })
}

render() {

    return (
            <div>
                {this.state.person}
            </div>
    );
}

and this is the error I get

http://prntscr.com/k36ggq

I am pretty new in this, so if anyone can help me with this that would be great. Thanks

Answer

Try by setting the header as follows. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS You just remove the mode: ‘no-cors’ in your code,

componentDidMount() {
    fetch('https://randomuser.me/api/?results=500')
    .then(response =>  response.json())
    .then(resData => {
       //console.log(JSON.stringify(resData))
       //do your logic here       
       //let person = resData.results
       this.setState({ person: resData.results }); //this is an asynchronous function
    })
}

render(){

  return(
  <div>
    { 
      this.state.person.map((personRecord) => {
        return <div key={personRecord.id.value}> {personRecord.name.first} </div>
      })
    }
  </div>
  )
}

//sample result json 
{
"results": [ //we already fetched the results array of object from resData
        {
            "gender": "female",
            "name": {

//By using this way we can able to get the result, but it just delays
fetch('https://randomuser.me/api/?results=500')
.then(response =>  response.json())
.then(resData => console.log(resData))
