URL to just the console of a python program? Work around?
CliffordMarr1

I know this feature was purposely taken down with plans to come back eventually, but I was wondering if anyone has a work around in the meantime that seems reliable?

I need a way to share an interactive console session with students, without giving them direct access to the editor.

One example of how I used to use this is: I would give them an assignment/activity to do x, y, and z. Then I would give them the console URL and say, "your program should run like this when you're done."

It was so useful in several ways, and I would love to know if someone has a work around or an update on when (or if) that functionality will be back.

@InvisibleOne Yup, I used it this week, so I know that it still works.

@InvisibleOne Thank you! This is exactly what I needed. I knew there had to be a simple solution like this.

Does this still work?

Seems to! I just used it today in a C++ repl.it. @tejaskamalsahu

yeah, the workaround is by using embeds

@Coder100 Thanks for the reply! I don't think I'm seeing how this is a solution, though. Is there a way to embed only the console that I'm not seeing? I don't want the editor to be visible in the same link/window.

yea, ?outputonly=1 @CliffordMarr1
