Forums > Server-side Swift

I was wondering if someone could provide some assistance. I'm currently running into an issue with my Swift code. The error is the below.

Error: 'View' is ambiguous for type lookup in this context

This occurs for the code snippet below at Future<View> in the FrontEnd class:

func getHomePage(req: Request) throws -> Future<View> {
    return try req.client().get("http://localhost:8080/backend/stories").flatMap(to: View.self)
    { response in
        let posts = try response.content.syncDecode([Post].self)
        let context = CategoryPage(title: "Top Stories", stories: posts)

        return try req.view().render("home", context)
