slow loading of repl js projects over https

I've been having issues with javascript repl projects containing png files and other assets for simple games. Over https they are taking ages to load. over http they are fast to load. for example I have a project with 4 megs of assets that takes 30 seconds to load in repl https and 2 secs in http. This was not the case for the same projects about a year ago so unsure why the change.
Anyone else noticing this? it happens at multiple locations for me so not any 1 internet connection

Hello :D Yeah sometimes repl has a couple loading times that are kind of annoying. They all depend on

  1. number of users on a particular repl (I think, based on Vandem14)
  2. images/exteneral files
  3. wifi
  4. probably other things I'm just not smart enough to list them.
    On the other hand, repls, even with very large png files, will load fairly fast. If you see that your repl doesn't even run, then the problem is on repl. By run, I mean the preview on the right on a html 5 doesn't load. You can track repl's hosting service (to make sure it's not just you and repl is actually suffering) here: https://status.repl.it/

@AdCharity thanks - for me the problem is consistent and only occurs using https. Using just http for the same project is 15x faster to load

@djneils :l yeah I'd head over to the discord or the bug reports because that's pretty strange (haven't actually noticed it myself)

Haven't noticed it myself, but that is certainly the strangest bug I've ever heard of. Maybe bring it up to the Bugs page?
