Need help with a repl - bash + express
Profile icon

Using bash, express, and puppeteer. Works first time, then shows up with this fluxbox thing every time after... Update on this... I'm using async. I think it's something to do with puppeteer

Your repl? (by the way fluxbox is a window manager for linux)

@programmeruser yes this is my replit. Whenever puppeteer launches, it permanently opens up this fluxbox that never goes away. This will also stop my express server from working

Can you tell us how you fixed it please @colonial345

@chethansai I couldn't find a fix even after trying many different things. I don't think repl.it is the best place to use puppeteer.

@colonial345 why'd you say you fixed it then? I could have helped you...

@programmeruser It turned out only to be a temporary fix and the program worked, but unreliably. Puppeteer worked fine locally for some reason so that's what I used. Sorry if I left this open ended
