Repl.it won't load student's project
DrJamesJames

I'm a teacher and my class is using repl.it for a web project. One student reported not being able to load her project over the weekend and it's not loading in class either. She tried multiple platforms and browsers.

Other students are not having a problem. Is there a workaround?

WORKAROUND: It was only one specific project. When I forked it she was able to edit the copy. She still can't get the original to load.

Bizarre.

Hey @DrJamesJames, glad you found a workaround, but this shouldn't happen. The original repl (linked in this post) is loading fine for me, how does it look on your end?

I was experiencing the same problem with one of my repls. It would load everything but the code. If I tried to load other repls, it would work. For my repl though, when I tried loading it after 5ish hours after it initially wouldn't load, it started working again. I don't know what's causing that to happen.

This is likely a problem with repl.it. When I was working on surviv3 I encountered the same problem. The workaround
I got was to make a .replit file.
Inside it, put

Or something like that based on what language is needed.
