Technical Problems

Hello everyone. Quick question: when you are using REPL to code, does the terminal ever blank out on you? It does that to me all the time and it's really annoying, because I'm not able to edit or anything on the terminal. It won't do anything at all for the rest of the day. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks!

At the very least, I don't. Sometime my terminal takes a while to load, or just is stuck loading, but even then I don't care because I don't use it much. Though, once I used repl on tor, and the console wouldn't show anything. (probably just an out of date browser in that case)

Yes, that does happen sometimes to me as well. As a quick workaround, I open the shell by pressing the F1 key and then typing Open Shell in the search box that pops up. In case F1 doesn't work, you can also do Ctrl + Shift + P and then use the command line commands to run the repl.

Unfortunately, this isn't a permanent fix and only a quick workaround, it should help with debugging.
