What forgot to swap out the id and accessToken:

id: 'your.mapbox.project.id',
accessToken: 'your.mapbox.public.access.token'

You'll need to change the accessToken to the one you get when registering with Mapbox and the id to a mapbox project id like mapbox.streets, mapbox-outdoors, mapbox-satellite or a custom id you get when creating a custom map via Mapbox Studio Classic.
